PORTUGAL: 23-27 March 2000 : A long weekend in based in Lisboa; this trip involved my first ever flight. This features photos from Lisboa, Campolide, Barreiro, Cascais, Pinhal Novo and Entroncamento, and includes classes 1100, 1200, 1500 & 1800 in original liveries. We visited Lisboa Rossio on 23rd March, but it was too dark for photography.

PORTUGAL: Dumped Steam at Regua 1991/92 : The sight of the ten dumped metre gauge tank engines I found around the dual-gauge turntable at Regua when I visited on 20th May 1991 left a lasting impression on me; they were all still in situ a year later, and, although these visits have been partly covered in the Portuguese narrow-gauge collection elsewhere in the gallery, I felt that this rather sad spectacle deserved a collection of its own. Regua is situated in the Douro valley, and the metre gauge line ran from here to Vila Real, and originally, to Chaves. The locomotives themselves are all Henschel 2-4-6-0T's, built between 1911 and 1923. Positioning of the locos, for those interested, was (west to east, and south to north): E205, E204, E212, E208, E206, E202 + E201, and E209 + E215 + E210. The 150-ton dual-gauge turntable was constructed in 1923 by Joseph Vogel, Mannheim, Germany. Here then, are a few photographs showing how it was at Regua in the summers of 1991/92. (The 1991 photos are first, then 1992). Postscript: owing to the Portuguese financial situation, all of the remaining metre gauge railways have now closed.

PORTUGAL/SPAIN: 14-23 May 1991 : This overland trip started from Portsmouth on 14th May, by way of an overnight ferry from Newhaven-Dieppe, thence to Paris in time to catch the 09:33 Sud Express from Paris Austerlitz to Lisbon/Porto. The few Spanish photos here are from just the one location: Miranda de Ebro depot. We'd got off the train at Miranda on the return trip, in order to spend a few hours photographing some Spanish trains, but as soon as our train left we discovered that a rail strike was in operation as of NOW, and no more trains would run into the early hours next day, so I managed to arrange a depot visit.

23 May: Miranda de Ebro, Barcelona Sants, (a few Barcelona Metro trips in order to visit Sagrada Familia), Cerbere (Cerbere SP - 13 locos), overnight to Paris Austerlitz.
24 May: Paris Nord, Amiens, Boulogne Ville, ferry Boulogne-Folkestone, and home via London.
Unfortunately, I don't appear to have taken any photos after Miranda de Ebro.

PORTUGAL: Narrow Gauge Coaches, Wagons & Track Machines 1990-92 : With the recent announcement that all remaining Portuguese metre-gauge lines would be closed at the end of 2011, this seems an apt time to upload this collection of photos. Taken during the course of three visits to Portugal in 1990, 1991 and 1992, here will be found all manner of rolling stock, including coaches, wagons & trucks, draizines, and a few oddities, and I now doubt any which have survived so far will ever turn a wheel again.

PORTUGAL: Broad Gauge Hauled Rolling Stock & Departmental Vehicles 1990-92 : I decided to start photographing railway coaches in Portugal in 1990, when it became apparent that there was a great variety of ancient stock, on both broad & metre gauge systems. Here is a collection showing a wide range of broad gauge rolling stock, old and new, including departmentals & track machines, etc, taken during the course of three visits to Portugal in 1990, 1991 & 1992.

This section covers locomotives (steam and diesel), diesel multiple units, diesel and petrol railcars, and their trailers. A few line views have been included.
