M6


M1


The rest is a crap:
M4(Circumvesuviana)




M2 (FS)


I hope, it will change - both in Napoli and in Roma

No I speak of the M2, the route is maybe not suburban but the rolling stock is.
I also took Circumvesuviana, horrible as well.

Line 2 as works today is a passing-by and National railways still use it for long-distance trains
Once Afragola new high speed station construction will be over then line 2 will be something like Milan Passante Ferroviario working just with suburban and urban trains... not really a full metro anyway

For Circumvesuviana and Cumana... trains are old but they're going to change 'em soon (they're now testing first new trains of Circumvesuviana) and old station are all on renewal, and many have been renewed... then they're adding new stations to make some branches to become a metro service
Then there is even MetroCampaniaNordEst (MCNE), a new metroline pratically fully underground on old Alifana railway track... trains are the ones of line 1 (when line 1 ring will be completed MCNE trains will go on the ring; like Circle Line in London) and stations are clean and quite nice

Anyway: Montesanto Station (renewed) terminal of Circumflegrea and Cumana

In Rome, Termini is the main Trenitalia station and is also the only point where both Line A and Line B meet. So I guess that's a yes.

The same track no - only London Underground do it.

Even shared platforms are not common.

(strange exception: in Barcelona, somewhere in the city centre, there is a track link between RENFE and Metro line 1)

I enjoy seeing those pictures. I went to several of those stations when I visited. Good memories.

But sadly, I have to agree with many of the previous posters. Rome's metro is somewhat gross and unimpressive for such an otherwise grand city.

I found Line A to be pretty clean & modern throughout. Certainly the rolling stock was good quality, similar to that in Barcelona. Line B is a mess, but I'm guessing that line will get new rolling stock fairly soon as well.

In Plaça Catalunya metro and train station, but that track link is only used to carry new metro trains from the train factory to the line 1 of the metro, through railway system.

Berlin U-Bahn shares tracks with S-Bahn as far as I know.

ROME | Public Transport


Line C will be the third line of the metro system of Rome, central Italy. It will be the first fully automated line in the city.

The line is currently under construction, and the first part is scheduled to open by 2011. The line reuses part of the old Rome-Pantano railway, a light railroad that is the last remaining part of the old Rome and Fiuggi Rail Road.

From August 2006 onwards archeological investigations took place before construction could start. The first construction sites opened in March 2007, on Piazza Roberto Malatesta, to construct Malatesta station. Lodi station followed one month later.

In May 2008 two Tunnel Boring Machines were set up at Giardinetti, and two months later the old Rome-Pantano railway was truncated at Giardinetti to allow restructuring of the old surface line, which will form part of the new metro. This stretch is scheduled to open in 2011 (Pantano-Centocelle), and to be extended to Piazza Lodi in 2012. The part of the line that crosses the city centre will then be opened up to Clodio-Mazzini in 2015, and further extensions could be operating by 2017.

The route is about 34.5 kilometers (21 mi) long, of which 17.6 kilometers (11 mi) underground, and the rest in the open air.

Originally the two planned termini were Pantano (a frazione of the comune of Monte Compatri) in the east and Clodio-Mazzini in the north, but in March 2007, a northward extension along the Via Cassia was announced, with nine more stations up to Grottarossa. A depot is under construction at Graniti. The line will cross Line A at San Giovanni and at Ottaviano-San Pietro-Musei Vaticani, and Line B at Colosseo. At the Colosseo stop a public museum will be constructed in the station to display archeological material that was activated during construction.
