FSI save the train ferries, they will also try to reduce the time between Rome and Palermo in order to be more competitive. Find here the link of ferrovie.it news :

So far the news stories I've read seem to be focusing only on the withdrawal of the train ferry services in the context of passenger trains.

There's a quite a bit of freight traffic between Sicily and the mainland. Do the freight cars move in different train ferries or will the remaining ferries be adequate for cargo trains?

One on the right side is also brand new diesel unit Pesa Atribo - ATR220Tr.

Actually Pesa has a newer model which might be seen as successor of Atribo - Link (a few ones are being used by Polish railways, 31 by České dráhy, Deutsche Bahn ordered 71 units, Regentalbahn is close to enter into services 12 and Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn ordered 9 of these), but Atribos are already being used in Italy: 27 by Ferrovie del Sud Est (in Apulia, since 2008), 2 by Ferrovie Nord Milano (since 2009) and 12 by Trasporto Passeggeri Emilia-Romagna (since 2009).

Those new Atribos will be used in Tuscany, Abruzzo, Campagna, Calabria and Marche.

It's how the first unit looked during leaving Pesa's factory:

Yep, the freight cars move in different train ferries.

I'm a bit confused right now. Several sources from around the world, for instance this one, report that Hitachi and Finnmechanica reached a deal this night to sell AnsaldoBreda to Hitachi.
An Italian site however still mentions it is only a 'definitive offer' and a final decision by Finnmechanica is yet to be made.
Does anybody have more insights?

Fixed!

Otherwise, thanks for the photos you post here, but maybe you could group them in a single post to avoid lengthening the thread too much.

Altrimenti, grazie per le foto, anche se magari potresti raggrupparle in futuro in uno stesso post per non allungare troppo il thread.

I'm sorry, but isn't it better to have less pics per post?

USing it on a mobile device is much better without threads that have dozens of pics each! I'd rather have the least amount of pics per thread possible. Or it takes forever to load and scroll.

I agree on a reasonable limit of photos per thread, but if most posts contain only text, then it is better to group photos in just one or two posts.

In general, I think that many pics = no pics (I mean that it is better to have a few representative photos thatn dozen of photos similar to each other - I'm not referring to this thread).
