I was in Lisbon in 2014 and I took the train to Cascais. However, I found the trains quite nice and comfortable, they really did not look as if they were 60 years old. I especially liked the unpainted aluminium exterior. But of course, that's just a superficial impression.

I will translate you 2 paragraphs of a portuguese newspaper report (2015) about the Cascais Line and it`s problems:


"It is no coincidence that a workshop of electric trains have 20 mechanics and 10 electricians. The major component of this is mechanical. " The outburst is José Rola, responsible for workshops EMEF Oeiras, where you do the repair and maintenance of Cascais line trains, one of the oldest fleet of CP.


There are coaches whose structure dates from 1926. And the latest engines are 1979. Most are from the 60s and have problems not only because they are old, but because they were made to work with a chain drive that is not current. It is that in the 90 trains of the Cascais line were the target of a remodeling that air conditioning has equipped, better seats, new driving cabs and a more modern design." [using google translate]

Going to the museum: Let's carry the Drewry

Going to the museum: Let's carry the Drewry

"Going to the museum: let's carry the Drewry" aims to collect 5.000,00 Euros for the transport of the last Drewry from Guifões, in the North of Portugal, to the National Railway Museum, in Entroncamento.

The first series of vehicles equipped with a diesel engine coming to Portugal was the locotratores Drewry, in 1948. The last years of six locotratores (1001-1006) were spent in Porto Campanhã. This Campaingn aims to gather the money needed to carry the last Drewry from Guifões, in the the north of Portugal, to the the National Railway Museum in Entroncamento. Afther it´s arrival to the museum, the Drewry will be restored and integrated in our permanent exhibition so that everyone can experience this extraordinary vehicle.
