The rest of the day will be spent at Cavi di Lavagna station
I have been before, and the combination of heavy rail traffic and nearby sea/beach is very pleasant
The railway is following the coast between Genoa and La Spezzia, the average maximum speed here is around 100km/h

Nearby bar is not allowed to be used as a waiting hall

I am having a cold beer while waiting for some cargo trains
DB Cargo Italia is using this line
483 101

ETR104, Alstom Coradia Stream

After spending more than 4 hours here, I can spot some more freight trains. Today is Saturday, maybe this explains the rare freight traffic today

Suddenly, there are 3 freight trains in a row coming from Genoa
