This stretch of track includes the problematic 'Puerto de los Peines' - Pass of the combs. This is the section that passes through the Puerto; in only 4.6km there are five tunnels and a bridge as well as cuttings through stone and huge embankments. In addition, there was a steep incline to 'El Apeadero' which required that iron ore trains be split at Pulpí and brought up by the loco in halves. In fact, the last 500 metres had an incline of 1 in 57. See video.
