Opened to traffic on April 22nd 1934, the new line was immediately characterized by its modernity, constituting a source of pride for Italy and a revolution for connections. Compared to Porrettana, which since 1864 was the only direct rail link between Emilia and Tuscany, Direttissima was distinguished by the double-track electric traction, very spaced stations, 31 tunnels (about 37% of the route) and numerous viaducts. Among the features of the new line stood out  the reduction of the length of the route - from 131 to 97 km, the maximum slope - 26-12 per thousand, and the percentage of pass - from 615 to 322 meters, characteristics that made possible to increase the maximum speed from 75 to 180 km / h.

Cambia il rapporto delle E.652

Nei giorni scorsi Trenitalia ha avviato un lavoro di modifica del rapporto di trasmissione sulle E.652, locomotori costruiti tra il 1989 ed il 1996 ed in servizio dal 1990.

Macchina test dell'esperimento è stata la E.652.048 che è stata individuata come la prima locomotiva, all'interno della serie di E.652 appartenenti alla Divisione Cargo, a cui apportare tale modifica. La stessa prevede la riduzione del rapporto di trasmissione dal valore originario 36/64 al valore 29/64 in modo da poter limitare la corrente di armatura dei motori a un valore di circa 950 A a parità di prestazioni.

Con questa modifica la velocità massima delle unità interessate sarà ridotta da 160 km/h a 120 km/h.

This is the statement issued by Perricone: "Today, with the signing of the amendment to the framework agreement  between RFI and NTV  we are pleased to announce that  .Italo will soon stop in Roma Termini, with its non-stop trains 's.  An important choice, which enriches the NTV network with a station that has an historical centrality in the city.

Ancona receives the new ETR 425

It was delivered today to Ancona’s depot  the first ETR 425 n.001 Jazz, built by Alstom and purchased by Trenitalia in 70 models.

The train (see the  video below) has left the warehouse of Roma smistamento in the early morning to arrive in the Marche region in the early afternoon. This region, along with Umbria, is the first to receive these new trains that will be soon in circulation even in Piemonte, Abruzzo, Calabria, Lombardia and Lazio.

In the latter region, at least in the programs,  they  will be used only  for airport services replacing the current pair of ” Minuetto” present on the Leonardo Express connection between Roma Termini and Fiumicino Airport. Probably for the occasion, the distributed copies for  this service will be provided with a dedicated livery along the lines of what has been seen on the same service.

.Italo in Roma Termini?

Today’s morning, NTV, using the G 2000 23 by FER (now TPER) has made  some runs between Roma Ostiense, Roma Termini, Roma Casilina and Roma Prenestina.

The runs were carried out with the isolated machine that in most circumstances has come down to the head bumpers of the main station in the capital.

It is certainly not the reason for these races but it is reasonable to think that in the plans of  “Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori” there is the opportunity to get their trains to Rome Termini,  entering into what has been so far a temple exclusively reserved for Trenitalia’s Frecce.

The real possibility is that the eventuality will cover the non-stop services, which could have in short term the main Roma’s station as terminus.
