Portuguese Steam Engine train at the Douro

One of my favourite shows at the Travel Channel is the one named “The Great Scenic Railways Journeys”. North America has a lot of private and volunteer steam engines trains that are a tourist attraction, and at the same time, keep it’s pre-industrial and industrial history. And this on two countries that have at most 250 years of “modern” history.

Portugal despite it’s huge 1000 year history and contribution to the global world history is famous for  forgetting and letting rot it’s assets…

So it’s good to see, again this year, an old steam engine train on one of the more beautiful rail-roads in Europe and across the OPorto wine region is back in action:

If your in Oporto area this year, don’t miss it: Every Saturday until the 1st of October.
