Sud Express @ Estação do Oriente

The Sud Express @ Oriente station. Due to the many years of use and the handling of different ambient temperatures, the blue sheet metal exterior of the sleeping car in front looks almost craquele. The next one is the corrugated stainless steel clad restaurant/bar car and last is the couchette car.
The design of the shed of the Oriente station (designed by Calatrava for the 1998 World Expo) has a distinct retro-gothic flavour. Quite a place to arrive! Alfonso helped us get the luggage out, and we looked at the train leaving for its terminus at Sa Apolonia station.

Pls check the third update of the travelogue for some more background information and the evolving travel story.
