Italy Withdraws Rail Carriages Due to Bug Infestation

Italian railways withdraws carriages after infestation

ROME, Oct 8 (AFP) - Italy's state railway company Trenitalia said Saturday it would withdraw more than 500 train carriages from circulation after passengers complained of an infestation of bugs on an Nice-to-Naples overnight train.

Passengers blocked the train in Genoa, northwest Italy, on Thursday complaining they had been bitten by bedbugs and criticising Trenitalia for a lack of onboard hygiene.

"To prevent further inconvenience and reinforce sanitary services onboard trains, Trenitalia has decided to withdraw from circulation 508 carriages from medium and long haul routes," the company said in a statement.

Trenitalia also said a team of hygienists had checked the procedures it used to clean its 2,800 rail carriages.

"The procedure under which a train is not allowed to leave a station without a determined standard of cleanliness remains in force," the company said.

The reduced amount of rolling stock will affect rail services, Trenitalia said.

I think all this question becoming a journalistic case got out its true nature...
Italian trains are not cleaner or dirtier than other trains in any other companies in Europe
I think thank a single case happened a month ago, a sort of "passengers" psycosis focussed media attentions on trains hygiene.
Trenitalia had a very bad "hit" to its image in this story: so it preferred to withdraw from circulation 508 carriages (I think it was partially forecast, but Trenitalia doesn't say that ) letting understand to pubblic that she cares about hygiene
"Travel with us: our carriges will be clean"

But the truth is there was not an hygiene emergency!

Then, if this story will bring up to have really cleaner trains, I'm happy it happened, however
