The CP website is partly in English - look at the very top of the page towards the right, next to where it says 'Accesso Rapido' and you will see a little English flag. Click on that and the index page changes to English.

There are two types of train between Lisbon and Porto - the ALFA PENDULAR high speed train and ordinary inter city trains.

ALFA PENDULAR is more expensive (€27.50) than Intercity (€19.50) one way but is faster. Trains run once every hour every day with extra trains at 'rush hour'

Most trains start from the Lisbon Sta Apolonia station stopping also at Lisbon Oriente. The journey by ALFA PENDULAR takes 2hr 34 minuttes; by Inter City it is 2hr 59 minutes.

You may reserve seats one month or less before you travel. Register with the site and you can reserve seats and print your own ticket; I have used this process many times and it is simple.

You do not have to reserve a seat but it is strongly advised as trains are very busy and if you wait until the last moment, you may find the next train (or two or three) is full. Standing is not allowed; all passengers must have a numbered seat ticket.

I hope that helps; enjoy your journey.
