Lisbon: Oriente Station






The Gare do Oriente is one of the main portuguese intermodal transport hubs, and is situated in the civil parish of Parque das Nações, Lisbon. The station was proposed as part of the modernization of the Linha do Norte, a modification to the rail line to facilitate the future development of an Oriente station. It was planned to occupy the lands once occupied by Apeadeiro dos Olivais, which was demolished in the 1990s in order to make way for the new station. Bids for building the project on lands to be used for the 1998 exposition were solicited internationally. The concept was originally designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava in 1995, and built by Necso.

Brief of the Tramways of Lisbon







The first tramway in Lisbon entered service on 17 November 1873, as a horsecar line. On 30 August 1901, Lisbon's first electric tramway commenced operations. Within a year, all of the city's tramways had been converted to electric traction. Until 1959, the network of lines continued to be developed, and in that year it reached its greatest extent. At that time, there were 27 tram lines in Lisbon, of which six operated as circle lines. As the circle lines operated in both clockwise and anticlockwise directions, each with its own route number, it is more correct to speak of a total of 24 tram routes, all of them running on 900 mm (2 ft 11 7⁄16 in) narrow gauge tram lines. The slow decline of the network began with the construction of the Lisbon Metro and the expansion of the bus system. Vehicles used are: the 'Articulado' trams, made by Siemens (Siemens/CAF nos 501-506 and Siemens/Sorefame nos 507-510), the 'Remodelado' trams (nos 541-585) used on all routes and the red tourists cars.

Lisbon: Rossio Station






The Rossio Station was commissioned by the Portuguese Royal Railway Company and was designed between 1886 and 1887 by Portuguese architect José Luís Monteiro. It was built in one of the most important squares of Lisbon, the Rossio, and connected the city to the region of Sintra. The tunnel was excavated under the city and is considered one of the most important works of engineering in Portugal. It was completed in 1890, and soon after Lisbon's Circle Line with a connection to the North Line also opened. The station became Lisbon's main passenger terminus until 1957, from that date only a few long distance trains terminated at Rossio, mainly West Line services, until the early 1990s.

So this is the complete trip of the Tramway Line 28, famous for being used by the waves of tourists and who goes through many of the most relevant places of the city such as the Bairro Alto, the Alfama Neighborhood and many of the observation decks

Lisbon: Cais de Sodré Station




The Cais do Sodré Railway Station is an intermodal railway station in the civil parish of Misericórdia, in the municipality of Lisbon, serving as the terminus of the suburban route to the resort town Cascais. In 1925, the company Sociedade Estoril elaborated a project for a station along the margin of the civil parish of São Paulo. The station was completed and inaugurated on 18 August 1928. In 1993, the metro station of Cais do Sodré was opened to link the railway station, a project of Nuno Teotónio Pereira, who was contracted in 1998 to remodel the site. He was brought back in 2000, in order to construct the river terminal along the northern margin of the Tagus.
