You speak about the Ansaldo 7000 trains which works in line 10, but many Madrid metro users don't like them because they have many problems...

Rome subway and suburban line

I haven't found in the World Forum the thread about the Rome subway (if already exists it I'm sorry)

The actual map of subway and suburban lines:


The map in 2020


The old map projects in 1986



Lines Under Construction: line B1 and line C
Official site of Roma metropolitane SpA

speaking of Rome's Metro, they are infested with pickpockets and the stations are so run down i'd rather take the bus.

The Station are very old, but I believe It will be Restructure such as the Manzoni station (Reopened some months ago after 2 year of working)

^That one doesn't look bad. I had often heard they were covered in graffitti and dirty.

Line B trains are covered with graffitti. Surprisingly, line A trains are new and clean. Romans seem to repect them .

Rome underground has some bad reputation but I only find Termini metro station in desperate need of refurbishment. The rest is not that bad.

Some stations and train are covered of graffiti and/or dirty, but sometimes are cleaned

In some moths will start the refurbishment of Termini metro station

Ah, yes Manzoni Station... I was in Rome in October on vacation and my hotel was located near Manzoni Station. I thought how convenient, I will just take the subway there. But to my surprise, the train did not stop at Manzoni because of renovations! The thing was, very few maps, whether in the stations or the trains, actually indicated that this station was closed.

The Manzoni station looks similar to some of the London underground stations.

The Line A stations are fine. It's just Line B that's rubbish. Are they run by different companies or something, because the contrast between the two is amazing. Beautiful new trains on Line A but graffitti everywhere on Line B.

In questa prima foto si vede la parte terminale di entrambe le talpe, la prima in fondo a destra e la seconda in basso a sinistra.


Questi, invece, sono i grossi cassoni che serviranno per smaltire i terreni di scavo.


E per finire, quella gialla in fondo Ŕ la grossa gru che sarÓ impiegata per sollevare i cassoni.

Passiamo adesso alla Stazione Colosseo. Peccato che qualche foto sia mossa.






Uno dei tanti mosaici che abbelliscono la stazione.


L'ingresso alla banchina in direzione Laurentina.


Il piano binari, sempre della Stazione Colosseo.


Ecco arrivare il nostro treno.


Una foto degli interni di un MB100.


Passiamo adesso alla Stazione EUR-Magliana.


Ora, invece, passiamo alla Stazione Laurentina.




Per finire qualche foto del tronchino di manovra alla Stazione Laurentina, con i treni in manovra.

Il mezzanino della stazione.

Ancora il mezzanino, con in lontananza i nuovi varchi elettronici di ingresso.


Scendiamo al piano binari.


Un'inquadratura in direzione Battistini.


La stessa foto di sopra, schiarita.


Inquadratura in direzione Anagnina.


La stessa foto schiarita.


Ecco arrivare il nostro treno. Certo che Ŕ un vero peccato vedere le testate dei CAF ridotte in quelle condizioni, che rendono anche impossibile la lettura della veletta elettronica anteriore.


Ancora la stessa foto schiarita.


Un interno del CAF.


Passiamo adesso alla Stazione Manzoni, recentemente ristrutturata. Un buon lavoro. Speriamo che sia solo l'inizio.
La nuova tipologia delle M che indicano gli ingressi della stazione.


Le scale di ingresso.




L'ascensore che per˛ non Ŕ ancora entrato in servizio.


Passiamo al mezzanino di accesso della stazione.


Le scale mobili che conducono al piano binari.


Il corridoio di collegamento tra le due banchine.


Ed ecco la bella banchina della Stazione Manzoni.




Ancora qualche altro particolare.




Ritorniamo all'esterno della stazione. Ecco i binari del 3.


Che sono purtroppo da troppo tempo interrotti dal cantiere dei lavori AMLA.


C'Ŕ da dire, per˛, che i lavori sono stati molto rallentati da alcuni reperti archeologici rinvenuti e che si intravedono in parte in questa foto.


Ancora un'altra inquadratura del cantiere.


E per finire uno dei tabelloni dei cantieri dei lavori AMLA.


Look at Manzoni station renovation... other stations will be renewed in that way
