Hopefully Hitachi buys AnsaldoBreda and then brings the V250 project back to life

Why?

Hitachi has far superior products. Let's hope they get more of their A-trains on European rails...

As far as I can see, this is the northern branch of the line from Palermo to
Trapani. I was there one month ago, and it looked closed. All trains on this
line were replaced by buses. On the southern branch (the one going via Marsala) operations were normal.

That's true, unfortunately.

Rome, October 30 - The government's so-called Unblock Italy decree has passed to the Senate after winning definitive approval in the Lower House on Thursday. The decree aims to free up billions of euros in funding for infrastructure projects, including new highways, railways, and major airport renovations, and help the economy. It cleared the House with 278 votes in favour, 161 against and 7 abstentions. The measure needs to win final approval before it times out on November 11.

No, there is not daily service between Agrigento and Catania.

How you can see, the line here is electrifed. It must be the service between south and middle cities of Sicily (Caltanissetta, Agrigento, Canicattì, Licata or Gela..)

Is it ever economical to even run a 1-unit train like that?
