Until the final decade of the 20th Century, Portugal boasted one of the most extensive narrow gauge railway networks in Europe. In addition, steam locomotives remained in regular service until the late 1970s, which resulted in the country gaining a reputation as a magnet for enthusiasts over a long period of time. Sadly all this was to end by the turn of the century, with only a few isolated routes operated by railcars remaining in use. This album illustrates the many systems actively at work between 1955 and 2005, with a diverse collection of motive power working amid stunning scenery and interesting locations.
