Journeys of the Douro Historical Train have sold out in all editions of August. Thus, CP - Comboios de Portugal decided to run three additional journeys on September 6, 13 and 20 Sundays.
The steam locomotive composition and the five historical carriages - from the beginning of the 20th century – depart from Régua at 15:28 and arrive at Tua at 16:35. On the way back, they depart from Tua at 17:06 and arrive at Régua at 18:26. They also stop at Pinhão, in both directions.
The capacity offered is 168 seats per journey due to the limitation of two thirds of the total capacity.
At Régua station, before boarding, passengers are greeted with local songs, Port wine and the traditional Régua sweets.
On the last Sunday of September 27, this Historical Train will make another journey, exclusively for health professionals. With this journey, CP intends to recognise and thank to health professionals for their remarkable and essential role in combating the Covid-19 pandemic.
