The first railroad in Pasalia was opened in 1879.
Locomotives like this serve the Main Passenger services. Despite the ongoing improvements more and more traffic was handled by road instead of rail starting with post-war era. Significant cuts were made to the network.
Pasalia's railroad network has improved since the early 2000s. In 2001 the Government gave PNR a fund of 4 billion PSD to significantly improve service until 2011.
The government started to look into the option of highspeed rail during the 1970s. Rising energy prices and negative health effects due to increased road and air travel were the primary drivers for this idea.
PNR maintains a number or URLs to serve international customers. These are in the respective language.
