Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Do you happen to have any idea what effect these new trains will have on capacity? The anecdotal evidence I'm seeing of Italians switching from cars to trains (due to gas prices) is accumulating, and I'm sure glad I'll be out of Italy during the Christmas season. I was waiting in line at the information office yesterday, to out find if it was really true that the night trains no longer stop in Trento (I'm afraid it is true), and everybody was swapping horror stories of recent overfull/overbooked trains.

I don't know what was the Milan-Rome and Milan-Bologna frequency before. In theory, capacity could not have been boosted; then again, the number of train units didn't increase much.
