Samoggia, Castelfranco Emilia, Anzola Emilia
Today I'm visiting Samoggia station, located on the Milano-Bologna railway
I was here in November last year, and it was heavy rain that day. Today it's about 40 C - don't know what is better. I have prepared for this day with plenty of water, and hiding in shadow which is available here
Next to the conventional line is the high-speed railway
Nearby there is also Bologna airport, so I have many moving objects to watch
It's interesting that the high-speed trains are using both lines
When using the conventional line, the high-speed train can make stops in central locations along the line
Finally, a freight train is coming
494 541, DP - Dinazzano Po S.p.A.
Dinazzano Po is an Italian public railway company (owned by Tper), active in the traction of freight trains and in carrying out maneuvers on railway lines and plants located mainly in Emilia-Romagna. DP was taken over by TPER in 2014.
And of course, another train is passing by at the same time as there is a passenger train covering the view
SBB Eurocity on the way to Bologna
Giruno train can be used in Italy, but not on high speed lines
494 025 on the way south with LKW Walter trailers
SAS plane on the way to Bologna
Regional train from TPER
Also, typical - two freight trains coming at the same time
