What me annoyed the most in Metro do Porto was the names of the stations. They were mostly just one at the wall, not visible from every place on the train, so you never know where you have arrived. Mostly one has to listen carefully to the voice announcements, but those are sometimes not clear enough. They should put more name-plates.

The new trains seem ugly, i prefer the older ones, they have this kind of 'chic'. Those new ones look just like %^%&*!

Never thought of that, for and a outsider i have to agreed that might be a problem!!

Perhaps the reason is that the Metro do Porto policy for the station is a minimalist one.

I agree completely, but the new ones (Tram-Tram»»»100 Km/h) are needed to the longest lines (Line B & Line C) because of the maximum speed, instead of the Eurotram that only has 80 Km/h of maximum speed.

Oh i didnt know that. Do the trams really go that fast on the routes outside Porto? I didnt go i.e. to Povoa de Varzim, only Matosinhos (the farthest route for me).
