Buy a ticket, hop-on, get out on the terminal station!!!


Now seriously:

there are 3 international connections, Porto-Vigo, Lisbon-Madrid [Lusitânia Hotel], Lisbon-Hendaye [Sud-Express], you can buy a ticket on the stations or buy on the internet (only for the Sud-Express & Lusitânia Hotel).

See the information on the cp site (in english):

Lusitânia Hotel

Well... not necessarily. You can end up here, at Lisboa-Oriente:

The intercity train hit the rear of the comuter train at 21h30 last sunday.


Apparently theres no one injured. Some 21 passengers were sent to the hospital but other than the shock theres nothing more.

The Engineers/driver of the IC train was complaining about a slight back pain but nothing more.


Luckilly both trains were going AGAINST the flow of traffic of a normal sunday. And the storms of saturday had kept most people at home so ocupancy was extremelly low on both trains. The comuter (who capsized) was practically empty with only 6 passengers plus crew of two.

That was the hand of God.
If the commuter train had been full, that would have been a massacre.
I still can´t understand how the commuter train got so destroyed.
It opened up like a tin can.

By looking at pictures I'd guess a lot of people dead here. Fortunately not.

There have been three serious train accidents in Europe in the last 2-3 weeks. Very unusual...
