Port of Trieste, freight trains can travel Transalpine also uphill

The line has a maximum slope of 25 per thousand

The Transalpina, the old Habsburg railway line recently reactivated for freight traffic to service the port Trieste following RFI's ongoing work along the coastal railway line ( 6 April 2020), is now also operational in the Climb. In recent days, the first trains have been run by Campo Marzio at Villa Opicina in double traction, first tests that are used to establish the towing volume of uphill convoys whereas the 14-kilometer line has a maximum slope 25 per thousand. Adriafer, the subsidiary sea Port System Authority Eastern Adriatic which is carrying out the traction service of the freight trains along the route, has already carried out about twenty downhill.

The ADSP specified that, thanks to the success of the tests even on the uphill route, the Transalpine is now used how to back up the port for outbound trains, giving continuity airport services in case of non-use main line.

"Our goal - explained the sole administrator by Adriafer, Giuseppe Casini - is to make 14 trains a week Transalpine to facilitate the rest of freight and freight traffic travellers on the coastline due to the limitations until 21 August, for RFI's ongoing work along the Trieste-Monfalcone. Next, we plan to continue use it, albeit more marginally, for inbound traffic from Villa Opicina to the port."

Currently, the Transalpine line can only be used container trains, thus excluding semi-trailers and mobile crates. A Casini said Adriafer was in contact with the company. RFI for the adjustment work required to use the all types of intermodal units.
