    [Portugal] New Stadler FLIRT for CP - Comboios de Portugal

    This is excellent news ... I will be able to get my bicycle up to Viana and the Minho area from Porto next time I'm there, so long as there are enough 2240 diagrams, or the Arco stock will allow cycles (I doubt they'll be, or at least won't be convenient)..

    Borders Railway - 5 years on

    Train announcements with a sense of humour

    I love the ScotRail guard on the HML with the superbly melancholic voice. Arriving at Dunkeld & Birnam, "Please take care disembarking as the platform here is *unbelievably low*." On another trip north, he came down the train looking for passengers travelling beyond Inverness so he could let...
