PORTUGAL | Railways

Because of the new economic and legal context, CP underwent a profound change in adapting towards the market. It organized itself into Business Units that were able to satisfy the needs of the different market segments.


It has invested in partnerships that add value to its services for the customer and strengthen its position in the transport sector.

At the same time, it has invested in retraining its human resources and tried to make how it faces new challenged more effective in a competitive market place.

Current Structure

CP (Caminhos de Ferro de Portugal) is currently organised into seven Business Units:

Freight Transport– CP Carga
Urban services– CP Lisboa; CP Porto
Long-distance services- CP Longo Curso; CP Regional
Fleet management
High Speed

133 million passengers and 9.5 million tonnes of freight were carried in 2004, over the 2830 kilometres of the network.

The Urban Units are especially important since they represent 87% of all the passengers carried.

Alpha Services - Speed train.



Intercity Services


Regional Services


Future Project: The Portuguese High speed train
The Portuguese High Speed Network will be a fast rail transport service linking major urban hubs with a high quality, reliable service in terms of its component parts and mobility as a whole.

Looks good. Are Portugese railways the same wide gauge as Spain?

Grrrr! Why does every other country in Europe seem to have better-maintained and more modern railways than we do?

I know its largely cosmetic but most of our railways seem to have filthy ballast infested with weeds and a lot of wooden sleepers still.

Great pics, Portugal must have come a long way.
