Caption - Portuguese Railways (CP) metre-gauge 0-4-4-0T Mallet E169 being serviced at Tua loco shed in May 1977. Built by Henschel in 1908 this loco spent many years working on the Linha do Tua through Mirandela and up to Bragança. The coaling facilities were very limited being loaded by hand into the cab and then the bunker. The vines overhanging the loco must have produced some lovely wine!
