Introduction to railway industry in Portugal

The history of rail transport in Portugal dates from 28 October 1856, when Portugal's first railway line was opened between Lisbon and Carregado. The early years of the 21st century saw the contraction of the network, notably the closure of most of the narrow gauge railways. Total rail length is 2 786 km and the track gauges are 1 668 mm and 1 000 mm.
