This side of the building was officially opened to service on December 2010. As a matter of fact is was opened on the first very first days of 2011.

On Octorber 20th massive floodings struck Rome as consequence of a severe thunderstorm hiting the town early in the morning.

Major damages reported in the subway lines and in most railway stations. Among those new high speed Tiburtina station, due to fully open to service on November 28th.

Most damages concern automatic escalators and elevators which electronics, as today, are considered unreapairable.

Here are some pics I shot yesterday morning.

The brand new eastern hall where worst damages were reported. Still you can see large puddles.

In the western entrance where works are still in progress, hundreds of pounds of brand new materials, due to be used soon, have been trashed as they've become useless.

But there are good news as well: Some Despe's vehicles (Italy's leading business in demolitions ) have been parked right next to the last old station builduing left.

So Tiburtina is going to continue the Trenitalia tradition of confusing passengers by having several instances of the same platform number?

Honestly I wouldn't bet a single penny on that.

Have you ever been in Bologna? It has three tracks numbered 1, 1 ovest (west) and 1 est (east). Well, more than 3 actually, at least until 3/3 ovest/3 est.

Or in Modena, where between track 6 and 7 there is another one without number (with platform, but it is not used by passenger trains).

If it is not used for passenger operations, why should it be numbered necessarily?

And what do you propose for stub platforms which twins interrupted by a building or long platforms used for 2 short train operations simultaneously?
