Narrow Gauge to Light Rail: Senhora da Hora.


A significant portion of Porto’s modern light rail Metro system is built on the right of way of an historic narrow gauge network.

In March 2019, photographer Denis McCabe and I visited the old station at Senhora da Hora in suburban Porto. The station building an a water tower survive, providing visual clues of operations from former times.

Tracking the Light is on ‘auto pilot’ while Brian is traveling.
