Tranquility on the Corgo

With vinyards as far as the eye can see, an unidentified class 9500 railcar is seen near Povoação on the Linha do Corgo whilst working R6102 the 09:18 Régua to Vila Real. Friday 18th May 2007

 

The Linha do Corgo was a metre gauge railway line in northern Portugal. It ran north from Régua to Vila Real and Chaves. On 25 March 2009 the remaining service on the line (between Régua and Vila Real) was suspended due to the condition of the track. Repairs were promised and the line was expected to reopen by 2011. However, due to budgetary constraints, the repairs have not been forthcoming and the line has been effectively closed.
