Wish they'd be in full service before June 14th. I will be taking the Italo on the 24th from Milan to Florence. They look much more sleek than the ETR 500. I know they were going to be doing a first run for the Expo opening but other than that, I wonder if they will have them in limited service between the start of Expo and the summer schedule.

The Frecciarossa 1000 service will initially provide eight trains each way on the core route between Roma and Milano, of which four will run through to Torino and four will terminate at Rho Fiera Milano to serve the Expo 2015 fair. At the southern end, seven trains will run to or from Napoli. Another six trips each way will be added in September, with the total increasing again to 22 trains in each direction from the December 2015 timetable change.
Although designed for a maximum speed of 360 km/h, the trains will initially enter service at 300 km/h. Trenitalia says this will ensure ‘outstanding performance in terms of acceleration, traction, braking and safety’, as well as a high level of onboard comfort ‘to meet the different requirements and needs of every traveller'

It is a nice train. I still prefer the AGVs of ItaloTreno, though, in terms of design.

How do their technical specs compare?

Hi!

It seems that ETR 1000 will pantographs for 3 to 25 kV. I also read they would take trains to France in the future (2030?), have pre-installation of 1.5 kV ?. To what extent?.
In the media also they speak of 15 kV, but I imagine that the manufacturer means that could equip new trains, not in these 50.

The size of a transformer is mainly determined by 2 parameters: frequency and power rating. A transformer for lower frequencies needs bigger iron cores and is therefor heavier and as you may expect a higher power rating also results in a heavier transformer. If they didn't specify 15kV capability chances are you can't retrofit it or have severe performance degradation, just like most TGVs on 15kV. Any train running on 3kV DC can also run on 1.5kV DC, but if it wasn't designed to do so from the outset, usually with a 50% power reduction.

Normally I prefer placement of the third headlight under the windscreen instead of over it, but in this case I don't. Why haven't they put it above the windscreen just like the Zefiro V380 has?

Good question, because this paint job looks a lot better if you ask me.
