Proposals to close all lines which do not have year-round passenger traffic have been dropped in favour of plans to rehabilitate them.  Traffic was suspended from 24 June 2016 between Laconi and Sorgono and between Seui and Arbatax, because of the poor condition of some bridges.  The lines to Sorgono and between Gairo and Arbatax re-opened for the 2017 season, but Seui to Gairo remained closed.

Services in 2018 were cut back somewhat and it was announced that there will only be a limited service on one line, thought to be Palau to Tempio, in 2019.  This was said to be because of renovation work taking place on other lines. No timetable was available by the start of the normal operating season in mid-June 2019 and there have been reports of legal difficulties preventing any service being operated. By November 2019 there were no timetables posted for any line, only lists of how long it should take to travel between each station.

Introduction

This list is based on the timetable in force from 15 December 2019 until 13 June 2020. Table numbers quoted here are from In Treno Tutt'Italia, the official Trenitalia timetable. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information. Map references relate to the Schweers+Wall Atlante ferroviario d’Italia e Slovenia.

Two useful symbols exist which show the booked route for trains not calling at a station: in the middle of the train column, a vertical bar "|" means that the train passes through the station without stopping, whereas a dot "." means that the train does not pass through that station but instead takes a different route.

Obscure services

Ozieri-Chilivani avoiding line: Torralba (km 211.5) - Ardara (km 1.7)

[360] (114D1) IT20/191

This south to west curve is used by trains between the Cagliari and Sassari lines if not calling at Ozieri-Chilivani.

Ferrovie della Sardegna obscure services

Limited services, marketed as Il Trenino Verde della Sardegna, normally operate over the following Ferrovie della Sardegna lines during the summer. There are also occasional public excursions at other times. Details are shown on website www.treninoverde.com, but it should be noted that these may vary in practice, particularly if there are insufficient advance bookings. It is also possible to charter trains.

Proposals to close all lines which do not have year-round passenger traffic have been dropped in favour of plans to rehabilitate them. Traffic was suspended from 24 June 2016 between Laconi and Sorgono and between Seui and Arbatax, because of the poor condition of some bridges. The lines to Sorgono and between Gairo and Arbatax re-opened for the 2017 season, but Seui to Gairo remained closed.

Services in 2018 were cut back somewhat and it was announced that there will only be a limited service on one line, thought to be Palau to Tempio in 2019, allegedly due to renovation work taking place on other lines. No timetable was available by the start of the normal operating season in mid-June 2019 and there have been reports of legal difficulties preventing any service being operated but the website Calendario shows details of trains operating from 8 August 2019.

The Calendario only shows the initial departure time and nothing on return timings so PLEASE NOTE where a return is on the same day that those shown below are from 2018 and this is no guide as to what service may operate in 2020.

Palau - Tempio

(113C1-113A3) IT18/192

Despite the website section for this line stating no trains will operate in 2019 the Calendario shows services as shown from 11 August 2019 and are planned for 2020.

These appear to run on Saturdays and Sundays departing at 09:00 with no return the same day but it is impossible from the identical website entries for each day to confirm if it is 9am from Macomer or Bosa Marina!! There are additional services scheduled between Bosa Marina and Nigolosu. Services are planned for 2020.
