Italy (Firenze - Roma direttissima) - Lines with Obscure or Sparse passenger services

Introduction

This list is based on the timetable in force until 12 December 2020. Although dated as 'from 14 June 2020' the timetable has been updated and reissued several times since then. Users are recommended to check the Trenitalia website to ensure they are using the latest version.

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 European Railway Atlas Regional Series and, in italic, to the Schweers+Wall Atlante ferroviario d’Italia e Slovenia.

A large number of local trains, especially in Northern Italy, and some long-distance trains, are shown in In Treno Tutt'Italia as not running after various dates in August and September 2020. If correct this would leave some areas, particularly Lombardia, with a very sparse service. The compilers anticipate a further timetable revision correcting this, so have not shown the trains concerned as 'dated' in the listings below. However, users are advised to check schedules carefully.

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.

This high-speed line is used by trains between Firenze and Roma, and south of Orte also by trains to and from the Ancona line. Unlike most other high-speed lines in Italy, this is electrified throughout at 3,000 volts and has conventional signalling, so can be used by all types of passenger trains. There are eleven connections between the direttissima and the old main line, but that at Settebagni is no more than crossovers where the two lines run parallel. These are not normally used by passenger trains. Some other connections are several kilometres long. IC and overnight trains may be diverted off the diresttissima if running late, so use of connections by these trains is susceptible to change. The routing of high speed and local trains is more reliable.

Following the introduction of high-speed services between Milano and Napoli there is far less use of connections on and off the Firenze - Roma direttissima. The direttissima is being resignalled to ERTMS standards and there are plans to convert it from 3,000 volts dc to 25 kV ac, at least between Arezzo and Orte. This may result in no further passenger use of connections to the old main line at Chiusi Nord, Chiusi Sud, Orvieto Nord, Orvieto Sud and Orte Nord.

In headings to each section below, junctions and the next open station on the old main line are listed in the order they would be passed by a southbound train. In all cases 1º Bivio is on the direttissima and 2º Bivio is on the old main line.

Obscure services
