the production cycle should also include Saturday and Sunday, eight

Then here it is the news, the new timetable North Rome Railway, from
November 2, 2012,

All these changes will risk jumping early, as some travelers told aware
of the problems of the line, the trains are few and very old, subjected
to additional stress, begin to suffer from more work. If new trains not
come soon , the good intentions will remain only on paper.
Catalano, they say, has the roof of workshop with a hole for years,
when it rains workers must stop work. Fortunately, it seems that will
begin early replacement of the roofs of the sheds. However, the good
programs mentioned above, concerning Ogr (workshops great reviews) is
expected not to cover Catalano.
It is believed that in Viterbo, as happened in Rome and in other
stations, it will go operating the new anti-avoidance turnstiles .
Travelers say, that are useless, the Portuguese continue to pass the
same, in the lane reserved for staff, it is necessary only more spot
checks on the line. Anti-avoidance turnstile, only ruin the architecture
of the old stations, such as Piazzale Flaminio.
In Vitorchiano, as some travelers were telling, there is no money to
repair the bathrooms at the station (about 5000 euro), but someone
thinks to replace the fence outside the station still working and
original, with an ugly metal grill to expense of the old architecture of
In Magliano Romano, the station recently restored, is in pitiful state
and it is in the hands of vandals.
In Fabrica di Roma the station is falling to pieces, in early October it
have been downloaded a few
thousand of old sleepers, which, they say, were unsuitable for the
railroad. What will?
In the same station, dozens of people, not to pay ticket, stay for
hours, waiting for trains, knowing that no check is performed.
The ALSTOM in service, extremely heavy for certain types of sleepers,
during snowfall or strong perturbations, stop, because the snow and the
water enter in the cooling system and send electrical short circuit
card out of order. Some say that the axes of the carriages are too far
apart and increase the consumption of the rails and the wheels of the
trains, causing the slowdown of convoys in curve. What do you say the
ATAC on this one?
