More Budd
Unfortunately time was running short [so could not explore properly] as you have to travel on booked trains in Portugal, my very tolerant wife wanted a coffee before catching the return train and I got the "once you have seen one coach / train you have seen them all comment" I got my own back later when dragged through the shops with "once you have seen one handbag you have seen them all".
Line up of 3 cars
These coaches were built for the fast Lisbon - Porto services, the first 6 were built in Philly in 1941, the remaining 22 under licence by Sorefame,
3 car EMU built by Sorefame under licence from Budd, for use in Lisbon Suburban service mainly the Sintra and North lines and retired in 2000. The rest of the unit was behind more stock awaiting restoration.

N.V Allen [Rotterdam] built in 1954, 25 units. 4 have been rebuilt and remain in service.
