I nuovi treni Caravaggio approdano sulla linea Milano-Varese-Porto Ceresio
February 1st, 2022 - Caravaggio trains for the first time overlook the border with Ticino, reaching Lake Lugano: from Tuesday 1 February, two new high-capacity Trenord trains will run on the Milan-Gallarate-Varese-Porto Ceresio line, covering more than 40% of the overall service, i.e. 16 trips out of 37.
By March, the entire fleet of this line will be made up of the new Caravaggio, replacing the Coradia Meridians, which will be moved to the Valtellina lines.The Caravaggios offer complete accessibility and a comfortable environment, thanks to self-regulated air conditioning systems and LED lighting, electrical and USB sockets useful for charging mobile devices.In compositions of four carriages with 445 seats, the Caravaggio will offer passengers of the Milan-Porto Ceresio even more sustainable high-capacity travel solutions: the trains are built with innovative and 96% recyclable materials.The trains are equipped with audio and video solutions for on-board information and 42 cameras for video surveillance; they have 12 places dedicated to the transport of bicycles.The two Caravaggio are among the 222 new trains purchased by the Lombardy Region for Trenord with an investment of approximately 2 billion euros, which will progressively make it possible to change the face of the Lombard railway service. With the two entrances in service, the number of new trains already in circulation on the Lombard lines rises to 39, 29 Caravaggio double deck and 10 Donizetti single deck.
