Coimbra station (sometimes known as Coimbra-A) was originally part of a through route to Serpins, closed in 2009/2010 as part of a plan to convert the line to the Metro Mondego, though this has since been abandoned. Now only a couple of terminal platforms remain as the stub of the short branch from Coimbra-B station on the Lisboa - Porto main line, and even this may soon close. A bus replacement is planned, using the old track bed, part of which can be seen in the foreground. The PTG tour is seen here with Comboios de Portugal (CP) class 2600 electric locomotive 2609 at the buffer stops.
