Two new trains, to continue to lower the average age of the Trenitalia fleet in Piedmont. The two Trenitalia Rock trains made available on the Turin-Milan and Milan-Asti lines will start service tomorrow.

Fleet renewal
The transport councilor presented them today at the Porta Nuova station Marco Gabusi and Marco Della Monica, director of Trenitalia Piedmont. The renewal of the fleet has already started two years ago and will end in 2026, bringing the average age from 26.7 years to 14.3. Almost half. A program already started in January 2021 with the arrival of 9 Pop trains out of the 38 trains (29 Rock and 9 Pop) made in Italy envisaged by the Metropolitan Railway Service Contract. To these are added 33 (9 Rock and 24 Pop) of the new Regional Railway Service Contract. The investment will be close to one billion euros.

Rock trains
Rock is a double-decker regional train: it can accommodate up to over 1,000 people (about 600 seats) and reaches a maximum speed of 160 km/h. The carriages are equipped with luggage racks and bike racks, distributed throughout the train, and are equipped with charging points for e-bikes or electric scooters. The armchairs are equipped with power and USB sockets and the internal air conditioning is self-regulating. On board the train there is also a family area, and in the toilets, changing tables and baby carriers.

The new Rock trains, designed with the latest generation technologies, will allow for a 30% reduction in consumption compared to previous trains and are made up of 97% recyclable materials, with points dedicated to separate waste collection. On board there are 50 CCTV cameras in each carriage with live footage and 38 monitors, double the size of the past, for the benefit of travellers.

.

It’s a historic moment, because in this moment practically once a month we inaugurate a new train” Gabusi commented with satisfaction. “The new trains will make it possible to modernize a line on which 45-year-old vehicles travel. This is important and even more important is the arrival of other trains” concluded the regional councilor for transport, referring to the 59 trains that will arrive between now and 2026.
