On the Ferrovie Sud Est
Author: 86235

The FSE is a local railway network in Puglia in south east Italy. Today it's part of the state railway organisation, FS.

These shots were taken a couple of days ago enroute from Lecce to Locorotondo, the DMUs are ATR220s, built by Pesa in Poland. We changed to an EMU at Martina Franca, that too was Polish, from Newag.

Equipment looks attractive and comfortable.

Not bad, but rather too much shiny plastic.

Those units may have been built in Poland but the design just screams Siemens. Licence built?

No indication that Siemens has anything to do with either design or manufacture. PESA has built a healthy business across Europe, including in Germany, for their DMUs. Maybe Siemens units scream PESA?

Nice shots! We’re in northern Italy right now (photos to be posted soon), and the preponderance of DMUs and EMUs is also happening here.

I last rode a train in Italy in 2007. At some stations, a bell would ring announcing an arriving train. Is that still the case? 

When I returned to the States after six years in Rome, I was disappointed in the sad state of Amtrak at the time compared with the service of FS in Italy. Still using paper tickets, slower trains, etc. I think things have improved, although my last Amtrak trip (Zephyr) in 2015 was quite nice.

I'm pleased to say, yes.
