Introduction

This list is based on the service valid as at 15 December 2018. CP's timetable periods nominally coincide with those in the rest of Europe, but in practice timetables are changed on an ad hoc basis, often with little notice.

CP no longer publishes a national railway timetable, so there are no table numbers.

Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information.

Obscure services

Lisboa Santa Apolónia (Bif. Xabregas) — Chelas

[TCE 693] (ERA 21C1) PT20/1
