New rail service for tourists in retro ’40s-style carriages
Published on 27/06/2017
Portugal’s rail service company, Comboios de Portugal, is following the ‘retro’ trend sweeping through the transport industry by converting some old carriages into a 1940s-style travel experience.
The carriages were in use between 1949 and 1977 and have been restored by the rail company to start a ‘time travel’ service from Oporto’s São Bento station to Tua in Bragança along the picturesque Douro valley.
