Trains in Portugal

They say an image is worth a thousand words. I have 2000 words for you. This is taken from the blog (in Portuguese) A Nossa Terrinha:

Portuguese rail network

30 years agotoday

Rigorously speaking there are still two extra lines operating that were removed from the second figure. But these will be deactivated soon due to cuts.

So, to get out of debt we cut one of the most efficient means of transport (its public and state owned so it has to be bad, right?).

This is going to work fine. So says the confidence fairy.

Correction: This relates to urban and regional transport.

There is still an intercity (or equivalent) to the South. And also freight.

that's shocking. I thought it was just the UK that suffered idiotic bogus-economics driven shutdowns
