Hi,
Is anyone familiar with which rails run through Lisbon, Portugal.

For school, I am studying Oriente Station in Lisbon, Portugal
The station has 8 rails running through it (4 platforms)


Does anyone know which railroad companies operate in this region?

I am looking to find information on commuter traffic, number of trains in and out, where the station links to, etc.

If anyone has been to this station, any opinions/reviews/pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Chris

There are two operators of commuter trains in Lisboa (Lisbon). The national railway company, Comboios de Portugal, known by its initials "CP" and a local commuter operator Fertagus. Only the CP serves Oriente station. Fertagus serves from Roma-Areeiro station in central Lisboa thence south across the Tagus River to the southern suburbs to Setúbal.

CP changed its name in 2004 from Caminhos de Ferro Portugeses to its current name.
