Nobody mentioned the Dolomites railway reopening project, between Calalzo di Cadore and Dobbiaco/Toblach. Studies are still in the very early stage, but seems like Veneto and South Tyrol authorities are moving forward to make it concrete.

Those old diesel railcars doesn't seem ideal in these tunnels, especially in stations...although the service is very sparse (I doubt more than one train per hour or so). At least until recently the Circumetnea did not have any service on Sundays, which is bad as it could be a tourist line like those in central Europe.

The proposed new Dolomites railway would be entirely new, likely with a lot of tunnels and fewer stations than before. One proposal is even for a northern terminus in Bruneck/Brunico rather the original Toblach/Dobbiaco.

The world’s longest and deepest rail tunnel is officially opened on Wednesday with a range of activities bringing together representatives of different faiths, political viewpoints and countries. The tunnel has taken 17 years and more than 11 billion euro to build.

The heads of railways in Switzerland, Germany and Italy have agreed a new direct rail connection between Milan and Frankfurt, passing through the Gotthard in one direction, to begin in December 2017.

When the full service opens in December, the tunnel will shave the train journey from Zurich to Milan down to two hours and 40 minutes, roughly an hour less than it currently takes.

Borletti-Antin buy Italy's Grandi Stazioni for € 953 mln



Italian investor Borletti Group and specialist French fund Antin have made a successful bid to buy Italy's Grandi Stazioni Retail for 953 million euros.

The Grandi Stazioni (some of Italy's largest railway stations):
* Bari Centrale
* Bologna Centrale
* Firenze Santa Maria Novella
* Genova Brignole
* Genova Piazza Principe
* Milano Centrale
* Napoli Centrale
* Palermo Centrale
* Roma Tiburtina
* Roma Termini
* Torino Porta Nuova
* Venezia Mestre
* Venezia Santa Lucia
* Verona Porta Nuova

The privatisation of Grandi Stazioni Retail, which leases commercial space at large rail stations, is one of several planned sell-offs Prime Minister Matteo Renzi's government hopes can help reduce Italy's public debt. The company is currently 60 percent owned by Italian state railways company Ferrovie dello Stato, while private investment vehicle Eurostazioni owns 40 percent. A number of other companies had also expressed interest in buying the retail space, including private equity firms Lone Star, BC Partners, Terra Firma, as well as Deutsche Asset Management together with ATP and Poste Vita.

Visit very welcome to Circumetnea Railway!

A delegation of Polish journalists came to Catania to see up close the new train "Volcano".

Journalists have traveled on the train along the slopes of Etna appreciating the landscapes of our territory.

A pleasant and fruitful meeting for Circumetnea Railway, which was able to present their company and the Etna area in prestigious Polish Information Network.
In this regard, the renewal of our rolling stock moving in the right direction:
the second train "Volcano" DM002 concluded all tests and will be put into operation in the coming days, you work to put into operation the train DM003 in the first half of July, the DM004 train will arrive in Catania next week and in the meantime we work to to order the other!

At least 10 people were killed in a head-on collision of two trains Tuesday morning in southern Italy, a firefighter told CNN.

The crash happened at about 11:05 a.m. in the Puglia region, said Maria Rondenodnone, a volunteer firefighter.
Others were injured in the crash between the towns of Ruvo di Puglia and Corato, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.

The dead toll is 20 now...

The article speaks about a line with 200 trains per day... If this is true, on a
single track line, that must be some sort of record...

That's way wrong.

Between Corato and Andria there are 60 trains per day.

It is a mistake. An Italian newspaper cites one of the directors of the company saying that they "manage" almost 200 trains/day, probably referring to their whole network.

The company is Ferrotranviaria Spa, a regional private company that operates both infrastructure and rolling stock in the Bari area.
State company is not involved in the accident.

The stretch were the crash happened was not equipped with any ATP system (Automatic Train Protection) and apparently the signalling system itself is far from being a recent one (station managers phone each other before a train can leave).
If confirmed it is not likely that the cause is some sort of technological failure, just because there is almost no technology installed in the infrastructure.

Other sections of Ferrotranviaria network are currently being updated to most recent standards, but not the one involved today.
