Portugal : CP

The Combios de Portugal (CP) is Portugal’s largest train and transport operator.

Services include the Alfa Pendular (fast train between north and south, top speed 220km/h - 138mph), the Intercidades (a bit slower and reaches more areas) and the Regional (goes into the regions, perfect for tourists wanting to see more of the country).
