If anyone is thinking of heading to or from Spain via the Somport tunnel its closed. I had to go over the pass which has a 3.5 ton limit on it and believe me its a bit hairy to say the least, especially with a 10 ton train weight. Thank heavens for Telma retarders. It looks like its going to be closed for some time as there are concrete blocks in front of the tunnel. This is a popular route for Benidormers and the like. You have been warned.
