    My wife and I are going to be in Portugal at the end of May this year. I've done some digging around and found information on the narrow gauge lines in the north around Porto and the Duoro. The tram museum in Porto will be a definite stopping point.
    Does anyone have any other points I should look for in the Porto area? We'll be in Lisbon for only two days before boarding the train to Porto where we'll be staying in house overlooking the Douro in Marco Canaveses Sande.
    Any information about hobby shops in Lisbon or Porto catering to model railroading and/or radio control flying would also be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Dave

    You're welcome. I would have responded earlier if I'd noticed it.

    If you will be riding many trains, check out the Eurorail passes. You have to get them before you leave, but can save serious $$$.
