Something I wish they did was to clone the Circumetnea ring

Do you mean "close the ring", right?
For this there's an "agreement" to do that through the RFI track (the national railway) from Giarre to Catania so FCE can handle the urban service on this line.
But before Circumetnea can do that, they must switch to the normal gauge and electrify the ENTIRE single track line from Paternò to Riposto.
So this process will take minimum ten years or more.

I was thinking of a second separate line higher up the hills, not a coastal one. Maybe they could build a branch to Taormina as well (uphill).

The FS station in Taormina is very impractical for the town, it requires a bus and a gondola to reach the main parts of town.

But that is all highly unlikely.

Daytrip of 2th April 2017 on the new stretch from Nesima to Giovanni XXIII


from parking:

Quote:






La stazione FCE in superficie e il collegamento tra la stessa, il parcheggio scambiatore e viale Bolano/ingresso stazione metro omonima:





Nuove piantumazioni in superficie e l'ingresso alla stazione.
Da notare la vigilanza del personale FCE.

Dectails of new "Nesima" station


Quote:


Ho utilizzato pure gli ascensori, che dal piano binari conducono fino in superficie. Con me una donna con bambino ed una signora anziana con stampella.
L'unico appunto è che l'attesa per l'arrivo e la salita in superficie faceva pensare ad un potenziale guasto. Tuttavia è andata tutto bene.
