That's a very interesting line, especially the museum at Colosseo station. I am looking forward to its completion. Then I'll have a serious reason to visit Rome for the first time after 1991.

Is the construction for the first parts on schedule? Must be a helluva job to build stations and a subway tunnel beneath a city that boasts such a lot of archaeological findings.

Infact they 'deleted' a station (Argentina station) in the city center after a test excavation

Actually my (insane?) conviction about that deletion is to find an excuse to 'economize': infact they could just delete one exit (exits in city center are the only parts of the stations which interfere with the archaeological 'layer' as the station itself is completely digged in 'deep tunnel') and not the whole station

Anyway they're going to build it even in city center

Line C was supposed to be ready for Jubilee 2000.

I hope it will be finished for 2011.

Rome is full of ancient ruins under the city. The construction of the line is going to be very difficult but the city deserves a better network so go for it!!!

That's pretty long time for just 5km and only 4 new stations.

ROME | Regional Railways

The system of the Ferrovie Regionali del Lazio (Lazio regional railways) consists of 8 lines, operated by Trenitalia, converging on the city of Rome.

The lines FR1, FR2, and FR3 facilities, particularly in urban routes to Rome, a rapid transit rail service, integrated with the underground and surface vessels, the other lines (numbered from FR8 to FR4) are served by traditional regional trains, used almost only for commuter traffic.

The class of service assigned to all the course is to train regional (R).

The numbering of the lines (FR1, FR2, ...) appears only in the information materials and on signs of some stations. In the timetable and the scoreboard of the stations is only the initials R and the numbering of the race.

Lines: 8
Stations: 128
System length: 672 km (417.6 mi)

Map of the system

There are mistakes on that map. The Roma-Lido, Roma-Giardinetti and Roma-Civita Castellana-Viterbo railways have the M symbol, but aren't metro

The Roma-Lido and the urban part of the Roma-Viterbo lines offer a metro-like service, with a train every 7 to 10 minutes on a reserved right of way. Line B has in fact been originally built as a branch and extension of the Roma-Lido line (there were Termini-Lido trains), but since the two lines have been separated (4 tracks on the common section) and use vehicles built to two different loading gauges. The Roma-Lido uses standard metro trains (like the CAF of line A) but with steps to the doors to fill the gap with the paltforms (RL trains are wider). The Roma-Giardinetti line instead is the remaining stretch of an extensive network of narrow gauge (950 mm) interurban tramways.

Chiesa Nuova has also been cancelled due to archaeological remains. I hope they get Line C up and running soon, it's desperately needed. Anyone know when they'll start building Line D while they're at it.
