Italy (Lazio) - Lines with Obscure or Sparse passenger services
This list is based on the 24 July 2021 revision to the timetable in force from 13 June 2021. Although the timetable is shown as valid until 11 December 2021, most long-distance services are shown as operating for only a few months. Such trains are not indicated by note 'D' (for a service only running on certain dates), because it is a reasonable expectation that their period of operation will be extended or a similar service is provided instead. It is assumed that the timetable will continue to be updated and reissued monthly, as has been the case since summer 2020. In general, local services are operating as usual and many long-distance trains that had been withdrawn have been reinstated. Users are recommended to check the Trenitalia website to ensure they are using the latest version of the timetable.
Table numbers quoted here are from In Treno Tutt'Italia, the official Trenitalia timetable. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information.
Map references for each route entry are given in parentheses ( ). References prefixed "ERA-E" refer to the European Railway Atlas (All-Europe Edition) by M.G. Ball. References prefixed "ERA-R" refer to the European Railway Atlas (Regional Series - Italy) by M.G. Ball. References prefixed "S+W", or in italic, refer to Atlante ferroviaro d'Italia e Slovenia by Schweers + Wall.
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.
Maccarese-Fregene - Ponte Galeria
 (ERA-E 84B2-B3; ERA-R 161A1; S+W 146A2-146C4) IT21/121
Most trains between Roma and the Pisa line run via Roma Aurelia. The following trains use the original main line via Ponte Galeria.
|SuX||R12503||Civitavecchia - 05:43 Maccarese-Fregene - Roma Termini|
|SSuX||R12567||Ladispoli-Cerveteri - 07:34 Maccarese-Fregene - Ponte Galeria|
|SSuX||R12566||08:00 Ponte Galeria - Ladispoli-Cerveteri|

Roma S Pietro – Città del Vaticano
(ERA-E 84C1; ERA-R 162B4; S+W 149B3) IT21/123
The branch line to the Vatican City has been used since September 2015 by tourist trains to Albano Laziale, for a visit to the Ville Pontificie. Travel on the train is possible only as part of a day tour, which starts at 08:00 with a tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Gardens. The train leaves from Città del Vaticano for Albano Laziale late morning. The return journey, departing late afternoon, terminates at Roma S Pietro. The train uses route IT20/124 in both directions.
The train is normally an electric multiple-unit and the branch is wired only as far as the border between Italy and the Vatican City. The train is unable to enter the Città del Vaticano station fully and stops where the arch in the boundary wall crosses the railway.
Trips operate on Saturdays, but details of available dates can only be found by initiating the booking procedure on the Vatican Museums website.
There is an option of visiting the Ville Pontificie by train without a tour of the Vatican, but passengers on this trip are picked up at Roma S Pietro and do not travel from Città del Vaticano.
Tours can become fully booked well in advance.
Roma Tuscolana - Roma Casilina

Civitavecchia – Civitavecchia Marittima
(ERA-E 84A2; ERA-R 160C2; S+W 68A1) IT21/126
This line diverges to the east about 2 km north of Civitavecchia and turns through 180 degrees to head back under the main line, running south into the port area. The line which previously ran direct to Marittima from south of Civitavecchia station and carried a public passenger service is now closed to all traffic.
The diesel railcar "Roma Express" was operated by Seatrain Tours between Civitavecchia Marittima and Roma S Pietro (the TrenItalia station, not the Vatican) as part of a guided day trip for cruise passengers. It is not certain that this is continuing in operation; the company's website no longer functions and an upgraded Civitavecchia Express service for cruise passengers is being promoted from Civitavecchia FS passenger station.
