85-Train cemetery in Fabrica di Roma
THE NORTH ROME
The rust begins to play its part, "eating" slowly all the metals not painted. Cobwebs everywhere and then more time decay. On these trains have traveled our grandfathers, our fathers, if they could tell, talk, tell stories, the ups and downs experienced by millions of people who have used them, we would be stunned. On these trains passed the war, the hunger, the black market, the fear of bombing. There was then the first class, dedicated to nazi occupation troops, on these convoys someone said that it was carried gold of Italy Bank kept in the bowels of Mount Soratte, then from Sant'Oreste in Fabrica di Roma was hijacked in part on line Capranica - Civitavecchia.
It is on these trains that Catalano workshop has done miracles. Under the direction of his father and then by his son Maestri, they have been dismantled, repaired. The spare parts hard to find have been created from nothing. It is under the direction of the great Sergio Maestri, which took place extraordinary things. When the carriages of the trains, due to worn and time were cracking becoming unserviceable, were removed, split, welded, refurbished. He was one who loved this railroad, he was one that without much paperwork assumed responsibility and he made traveling people.
Someone respectful of the past would like to buy these old cars, but transfer costs are high, about 7,000 euro. Maybe restore and put some old drive to one of the many stations, it would be an excellent initiative, this would avoid the high costs of transport.
