Italian railways
« on: May 11, 2018, 08:07:10 pm »
Just returned from a visit to Italy -Naples as the base -with visits to the Amalfi coast ,Pompeii and Herculanium for the Mrs to strike off the bucket list 🤔 -hey ho I enjoyed the trips - any how -by our hotel was the local rail line -so for anybody interested I took a few snaps- shows a few differences in the way the rails are held in position compared to UK practise -had a ride into town on an ageing number complete with a unique livery 😁 and a modern unit which was a damn site smoother ride albeit a bit clinical inside with just single seats facing each other on each side !!! Anyway Enjoy--





























Regards

Neil

Looks like they've never heard of weedkilling trains. Mind you, all the Air Italia planes have hair under the wings ;)
I love Italy and stayed a couple of weeks in Sorrento so did Naples, Amalfi Coast, Pompeii etc but prefer the lakes personally, especially Lago di Como.

Hi,
The only Trenitalia livery (here hated by all...engineers, customers,passengers , model railroaders ecc. ecc.) available in N is by locomodels.it .....an italian handmakers but models are not cheaper...surely ;)

I'd really like a D.445. :heart2:

On ebay I regularly come across the Minitrix D.220 in the livery of Ferrovie Emilia Romagna (FER) which I like, but not enough to have bid on one. Yet. :D

Clarification... :)
The “hated” livery is the white-green so called type “hospitalian”, now gradually abandoned

I’ve seen,
But FER is private company totally different from public company Trenitalia and its typical-hated livery :D
However, the V200 Minitrix is a great one.

................. but models are not cheaper................

Not cheap, but I do not find so expensive the models from Locomodels.it as they are very exclusive. As an example, compare the price of the TEE Lemano with the same model from Lemaco; it is about a third of the Swiss model.

New Italian shunter from PI.R.A.T.A, with or without DCC. Looks quite nice from the photos I've seen. Almost tempted to do a small shunting layout!
