Recovery of rolling stock for the Sintra Line - Visit to the workshops of Entroncamento

The Minister of Infrastructures and Housing, Pedro Nuno Santos, accompanied by the Secretary of State for Infrastructures, Jorge Delgado, and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of CP, Nuno Freitas, will visit on July 22, 2020, the CP Official Park of Entroncamento, to accompany the delivery of an Electric Quadruple Unit, whose rehabilitation has been completed and which will reinforce the train fleet serving the Sintra Urban Line. The Minister, the Secretary of State and the President of CP will travel aboard this motor vehicle - between Entroncamento and Campolide - where it will be delivered for entry into service in the coming days. 

Taking advantage of this journey, CP will integrate - in tow of this composition - one more Electrical Quadruple Unit, for the Cascais Line, which was also subject to a deep intervention.

The recovery of these Units is integrated in the current rolling stock recovery plan in order to ensure the reliability and quality of the service provided to customers.

During this visit, the work developed in this Workshop will be presented, giving special relevance to the intervention in motor vehicles of the 2300/2400 and 3500 series that will strengthen the offer of urban services in Lisbon and that were withdrawn from the commercial passenger.
