After almost 6 years without passenger trains in this international connection, since yesterday Badajoz (Spain) is again connected to Elvas and the rest of the Portuguese rail network.

A daily service operated by CP now connects the Portuguese town of Entroncamento (a key rail junction in the center of the country) with the Spanish city of Badajoz, next to the border, and then back to Entroncamento.

Travel times aren't really competitive (it takes 3 hours for 170 km), and the new connection won't be really useful to go from Badajoz to Lisbon, but at least it will be an important shortcut for people traveling to the north of Portugal from southern Spain.

First Portuguese train in Badajoz station since January 2012:

Minho Line


Nine-Viana Electrification completed on July 24, 2018


The guarantee was given by Miguel Côrte-Real, of Mota-Engil, company responsible for the works in the Minho Line. Miguel Côrte-Real highlighted the "strong link" that the North has to the railroad, not to mention the "importance" of the Vigo-Porto-Porto section, which was held on July 13 in Vila Nova de Famalicão, Lisbon. The person in charge points out the increase in mobility, the capacity to produce goods up to 750 m and the reduction of travel times as the main advantages of the electrification of those 44 km.


Antóno Mota, IP engineer responsible for the coordination of the work, approached the technical dimension of the work, such as traction substations and the passage of stops to stations, to allow the crossing of trains.


"It is in perspective to extend the suburban trains of Porto to Barcelos"


In the briefing session was also present Fernando Moreira, director of the urban train service of Porto. He praised that urban service, even considering it to be "one of the best rail services in the country". Asked about the extent of the urban of Porto in the post-electrification, the official said that "it is in perspective the urban of Porto to be extended to Barcelos."


"CP needs new trains"


One of the aspects emphasized by Fernando Moreira in the public session was the need for CP to acquire new trains. The public company has not done this for almost 15 years, and today it is using many diesel trains (some rented to Spain), which are "a logistical nightmare".


CP already thinks about Intercidades and Alfa until Viana


Asked by Comboios XXI about the hypothesis of long-distance services of the CP going to Viana do Castelo, Fernando Moreira said that this is a hypothesis on the table. After the electrification it will be possible to take the Porto-Valença route in about 1h40, less 30 minutes than at present.


Associação Comboios XXI strongly welcomes the fulfillment of the deadlines and will follow the progress of the works.

Those are old Schindler passenger cars/coaches from ~1950 refurbished in 2004 and now used for tourism in the Douro line in the summer. But since CP is having trouble with lack of DMU for non electrified lines in the country, they are using the Schindler passenger cars with locomotives to make regular service.
