Voters of Italy don't have ballots.

Italians like to have choice.

Italy is not Switzerland.

Italians railways are to be treated more and more as business, not public services.

That has nothing to do with the quality of rail in Italy or Switzerland.

That's true. But it was more a remark other things. Suburbanist seems to be of the opinion that his agenda trumps everything, that the wishes of the public, the tax payer or the voter don't mean anything. I just pointed out that if Italy is in his opinion a better country than Switzerland that quite a sizeable portion of the Italian population seems to think otherwise...

Very surprising, especially given the fact that there are about eight times more Italians than Swiss.

Very good. Tiburtina indeed makes a lot of sense for the Italian HSR network.

Nice pictures of Tiburtina!

So now, do all the high speed trains stop only at Tiburtina? Or do some of them still go to Termini?

Yes, Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori (a new private rail operator company) ordered 25 AGVs. You can check their website for pictures. However, they are keen on making the final livery (and interior) a "surprise", so far they are only painted in dark red.

They all still depart and arrive at Termini. Just a few Milan-Naples trains only call at Tiburtina atm.
This will change in the future, though.
