Poor?

I don't understand what you mean with poor

If you mean that it looks a bit oldand too dirty, you're right; but now they're completely restructuring it

If you mean they have to tear down (or partly tear down) the station to add a new futuristic structure it would sound to me as a vandalic act...

All I remember about that station is acres of gorgeous stone and being really bloody clean. And then you exit onto that lovely square with a fountain. Brilliant.

Rick ma perchŔ non apriamo un 3d nel foro Italiano con lo stato delle costruzioni delle nuove stazioni, che sono fighissime?

@Fanatic: eh lo so grazie...specialmente il binomio culturale Eva Henger-Einstein Ŕ azzeccato...

Italian TAV

The maximum operating speed for the new Italian HSL is 300km/h.

In the near future the train operating max speed will be 250km/h on Milano-Bologna-Florence-Rome-Naples and on the Turin Milan lines.

The ETR500 max operating speed is 300Km/h. In commercial operations the maximum speed will be 250km/h for the time being. On a test run it has achieved +350 km/h.

The ETR500 suffered a great deal of theething troubles, it is also heavier and more expensive than TGV, and has far less power/weight ratio than the French train.

At the moment, on the Milan-Florence line the commercial speed achieved by ETR500 is only about 115 km/h. Hardly a high speed.

On the other high speed routes the average commercial speeds are:
Milan Rome 128.2 km/h.
Rome Naples 156.92 km/h
Torino-Milan -105.51 km/h

In the past, when the Florence-Rome high speed line was only partially completed, the commercial speed was higher.

The current commercial speed between Turin and Milan is almost equal to that achieved in 1950 with light diesel railcairs.

In 1990 there were tiliting trains which were much faster.

The Italians have spent a huge amount of money to buidl three miserable high speed lines and, so far, the results have been quite disappointing.

As a matter of fact, in Italy, in the past 15 years, the rail service has greatly deteriorated.
