RENFE "Virgen de Lourdes"

RENFE 353-001-1 "Virgen de Lourdes" at Irún on 23. February 2000.
This little batch of 5 locos built by Krauss-Maffei in 1968 was the only class of international locos owned by Renfe, with automatic change of gauge on border. They were used to haul the Catalan-Talgo between Barcelona and Geneva in the 70's. The last were withdrawn in 2003.
