Public transport from Obidos to Porto

There are no direct bus services between Obidos & Porto.
The current CP timetable show two daily connections by rail changing at Caldas da Rainha and Coimbra-B.
Departures as follows:
Dept Obidos: 11h03
Arr Porto Campanha: 14h39
Dept Obidos:16h03
Arr Porto Campanha: 20h35
More info is available from the Portuguese Railways website at
The first two trains to Coimbra are regional trains and normally there are no reservations.
The Intercidades between Coimbra-B and Porto Campanha has to be booked.
This would mean getting a bus to Caldas, then to Coimbra, then Porto or back to Lisbon then onto Porto 
Two different companies are necessary with the first leg by local bus.
Personally, I would recommend the train option.
