Well, Cascais line is connected with Alcantara terra, so yeah... It used to have a connection with the main line with diesel trains starting in Cascais I believe, I think the Surexpress in the old times started there... Treat well my dear 592 series, the .0 series I heard that they came with a lot of problems, but the thing is that these ones were already retired and abandoned in Algodor, and taken back in service for the portuguese government...Alfacinha315 wrote: ↑07 Feb 2018, 20:03We also have the same situation with the diesel rolling stock. Old engines, with 90's chassis.
On Algarve, Alentejo, Leste and Oeste lines (with UDD 0450 and Allan 0350). And, in Douro and Minho line, we have spanish rolling stock in second hand, the 592 and 592.0 series. The same situation to the electric railcars running on Regional services.
Maybe in the future Cascais line has new trains, and a direct connection to Cintura line, as our governement has been promising, so, until that day, we have to visit that museum line as we can...
We don't really have so many problems here in Valencia with them, if you treat them well and mantain them, they are good old reliable trains, problem is that the maintenance here is rubbish, but the 592.2 shouldn't give you guys a lot of headaches.
