Old Rome-Fiumicino railway

 


The origin of the Rome-Fiumicino railway line dates back to 1875. Located close to Rome, Fiumicino is home of the largest airport in Italy ✈ In addition, it has a large fishing center๐Ÿฆ๐ŸŸ


A railway engine and a baggage wagon are still positioned on old tracks in a street in the center of Fiumicino.

The tracks of that railway line no longer exist, as the last train to Rome left the night of January 30th, 2000.  ๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿšƒ

  10. What a lovely post!
    I have a deep appreciation for historical railways and old trains.
    They carry so much character and tell stories of a bygone era.
    It's wonderful that you shared this piece of Fiumicino's history with us.
    I wish I could see those old engines and baggage wagons in person someday.

    Have a great week ahead, Giorgio!
