Photographer's Note

While on our way back to Alfama, after a visit to the Doca de Santo Amara, I was starting to shoot a train at Alcântara Mar station.

After a few moments, a young woman came running into the frame from the ticket office, clutching her phone and ticket, trying to catch the Cascais bound train. Alas, she missed it. Luckily the trains on this line run fairly frequent.

Information for train geeks like me: The EMU (electrical multiple unit, UTE in CP parlance) in the background is one of the 18 trains of the 3251-3271 series, which are exclusively used on the Lisboa (Cais do Sodre) – Cascais line. Like most Portuguese passenger trains, these stainless steel trains are Sorefame build (1959-1979 and modernized in 1998.), following design and patents of the Budd co of Phil. USA.

By the way: after posting I alas noticed that the exposure was lowered in the process. A not unknown phenomenon but a real pity.
