Caption - Portuguese Railways (CP) 2-6-4T 083 on the dual gauge turntable at Regua in April 1971. This class of 14 locos was built by SLM, Henschel and at the CP workshops in Lisbon. Their use on the Douro Valley line from Porto was generally limited to lighter trains. In a few years steam on the broad gauge would cease and Regua would only see steam on the metre gauge line to Chaves.
