train travel

I have just come across some info about the train that runs along the Algarve. I know it is a pretty low key service as I have used it in the past, but this website seems to infer that the line is closing down altogether. Can anyone throw any light on this as we are hoping to travel from Cabanas to Faro and back on a day out in February. Thanks

Chaos abounds. Strikes have been announced for the 11th, 12th and13th February but the court has decreed that minimumservice, must operate.

Details of the trains which will be running over those three days in the Algarve can be found in this official notice, which was sent out at 1544hrs TODAY!!


Industrial relations must be at a new low. The end of the railway is nigh.

Trains to and from Lisbon are also affected.

Which is why B is travelling Rede Expressos Bus from Lagos to Porto next week!!! ;)))

A report in the Portuguese press a few days ago stated that CP had 7% less passenger traffic in 2012. It stated that a large part of that 7% was due to the ongoing strikes!
