Hi dear TE friends

Place : Vale do Peso - station of train

Region: Municipality- Crato / Parish- Vale do Peso,total population of 344 inhabitants (zone south – Alentejo - Portugal).

Theme: Railway Station in inland villages
To see: map view

March will be the dead line? This line will be closed forever...? I hope not...!
The progressive development way of life and the cosmopolitan concentration in modern cities are two of the main reasons to disabled tradition costumes.
That's what's really happening at railway stations all over the interior villages of Portugal.
The "Cáceres" line, was open in 1880 to connect Lisbon to Madrid. This line has two stations at "vale do Peso". This photo is an homage to portuguese railway heritage.
This picture shows how beauty are the rural railway stations. Every year they are less and less...
In the future only merchandise trains will role in this line. Sincerly, I hope someone could convert it to a touristic line.
We all deserve it!

Best Regards, Filipe (Portugal)
