    Whatever, as this kicked of in Lagos, I would advise a €2 return train ticket to Portiamao or even a €5 to Olhao could prove a good investment.

    Realist - as Graham knows, in the past some folk in Lagos were experts at asking the wrong question, in the wrong place at the wrong time and waking sleeping dogs.

    Fortunately, most of these folks have departed but their legacies can live on.

    emandvee44, I will be very interested to read the outcome of your visit to Portimao's Capitania.

    From past experience, Portiamao take a more pragmatic approach.

    No choice given in Faro yesterday when someone renewed, E70.

    Where do you get a train ticket to Olhao for a fiver?

    If you are over 60, then all you need is ID at the Railway Station and the discount is automatic. Sadly I've to wait another 8 years, but I tend to sail there anyway, it's only a couple of hours away from Vilamoura.

    You could try the station but, being a youngster, may cost you a bit more We pensioners can get to Lisbon for €15 each first class.

    The irony is with modern technology, reliance on lighthouses is becoming less and less and even more curious, coastal vessels, who will make most use of the lights pay less than the ocean goers, who use of lights is far less.

    Well that is Faro off the list for paying light dues. The hot money must be on Portimao or Olhao.

    Lagos to Faro train fare €3.20.

    The fee is not only for lights but also for buoyage. I suspect that for many people the buoys are more important than the lights but the entrance to a channel can be a bit tricky too although I agree that lighthouses are less important than they used to be.
