Welcome to "Phil's Loco Photos"

A quick three day trip to Portugal, using Lufthansa from Heathrow via München, due to total lack of intelligence the ground staff at München closed the gate shut the gate a few seconds before I got there and would not re open it. After a very heated discussion I got on the next flight which was TAP and landed in Lisboa at 15.10. A fast taxi to Moita (at Lufthansa’s expense) for my urgent business meeting with Mr Alco! I took a DMU to Pinhal Novo and then 1525 south to Funcheira on train R3801. 1501 was in fine form on IR872, it was a thick foggy evening and the loco was storming along with the classic horn blaring away, fantastic memory! Took 1510 south on R4700 to Faro and a DMU to Vila Real for 1939 back north on IR870 to Setúbal. We then walked to Praça do Quebedo for a DMU to Pinhal Novo and 1934 into Barreiro. 1505 back out on R3801 and then we had a loco swap at Pinhal Novo and 1505 working forwards. We took that to Grândola for 1935 back north and stayed in Setúbal. Next day we did 1525 to Pinhal Novo and then 1936 south to Tunes and some 1400 moves on the stoppers to Lagos. We returned north on 1501 on R4702 and then finished on 1512 into Barreiro and over on the ferry for 2606 to Oriente and bus to the airport for flight home via München
