About CP Miradouro by Sergio Batista

"MiraDouro" is composed of the 1400 series diesel locomotive(Sometimes 2 Locomotives) and Schindler+Sorefame Tourist carriages.

The Schindler carriages - produced in the 1940s by the Swiss manufacturer Schindler and put into service on the national railway network between 1949 and 1977 - have recently been restored and their panoramic windows can be opened during the journey. It runs daily between Oporto São Bento/Campanhã and Pocinho and back.

The funny thing about the real-life train is the inconsistency of the rolling stock, it's almost impossible to see the same train twice, sometimes it's just two coaches, sometimes it has two locomotives, sometimes are fully colourful with several different coaches, sometimes are the same colors, etc

This Train was recognized by the Portuguese railway Company "CP -Comboios de Portugal" and they invited me to make this Video/Enterview with them https://youtu.be/5MFJnhtn5vM?si=uySUc1h4G8S0s3le
