Revision as of 20:44, 9 December 2018


This list is based on the timetable in force from 14 June until 12 December 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 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 think this is probably a timetable compilation error, 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.

Ferrovie della Sardegna obscure services

Limited services, marketed as Il Trenino Verde della Sardegna, 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 have been cut back somewhat and comprise the following:
