Speaking about Italy - my job brings me from time to time back into the country where I used to live - so have a few from this afternoon. I used FN to go from Milano Lancetti first to Porta Garibaldi and from there to Malpensa. EasyJet did the rest, and I just rolled home from Gatwick.
I took a few pictures at Porta Garibaldi, I have to say that Ferrovia Nord has upgraded their rolling stock, all looks up to date and there is even not a lot of graffiti on it.
First a 464:
This machine will push its train out of the station in a sew minutes.
There was no goods trains in sight, also on the 45min trip to Malpensa I saw no good trains except permanent way stuff. I suppose FN stopped all good services on these routes.
I wonder who serves the container terminal of HUPAC north of Milan, in my opinion also this is in the area of the FN. HUPAC is a Swiss company organizing the rolling road and container transport from Italy to Switzerland.
The only older stuff I could see was this double decker coach, probably also here a 464 was pushing from the other end of the train.
Most of the rolling stock at FN is formed by these ETR 425 EMUs
Here we see a little graffiti attack, but this is nothing in comparison to the FS stock in the past.
This DMU is looking strange, it has small power units - like mini locomotives- between the coaches.
After that it went too dark and also the battery of my camera gave up.
That's it for the moment, to get more Italian pictures I have to go there again - which I normally do 3 times per year.
