Photographer's Note

Texto em portugus mais abaixo.
Too much railways and train stations have closed during the last few years in Portugal (and elsewhere), especially in the less populated interior.
There is still a residual passengers service in the train station of Peges, but the station buildings are closed; you buy the tickets on the few trains that still stop here.
This photo is the also closed public toilet; this door is the men's section; the ladies' section is the opposite side. The building in background is much newer.
Some 40 years ago this station was busy and well cared for. Some years it won the prize of the most beautiful gardens in train stations. Now the gardens are also neglected, as you see beside the little building.

Demasiadas linhas e estaes ferrovirias fecharam durante os ltimos anos em Portugal (e noutros pases), sobretudo nas regies menos povoadas do interior.
H ainda um servio residual de passageiros na estao de Peges, mas os seus edifcios esto fechados; os bilhetes so comprados nos poucos comboios que ainda param aqui.
Esta foto mostra os tambm encerrados sanitrios pblicos; esta porta era o lado dos homens; as senhoras entravam pelo lado oposto. O edifcio ao fundo muito mais recente.
H cerca de 40 anos atrs esta estao era muito frequentada e bem cuidada. Em alguns anos ganhou o prmio para os mais belos jardins em estaes ferrovirias. Agora os jardins tambm esto abandonados, como se pode ver ao lado da casinha.
Localizao em WikiMapia: 38.6623706, -8.6188817. V tambm um carro de 60 anos perto desta estao.
