Heritage Train Torino-Ormea passing the repaired track section



storyIt was a historical day. On September 16th 2018 finally the Ceva-Ormea line has been reopened with a heritage train after the tragic flood of November 24th 2016. The flood took the whole curve away and a piece of the road that connects Ceva to Imperia at the ligurian sea.
You can see the train passing the repaired section at the sweet village of Pievetta by the white-sprayed rails to prevent thermic expansion.
On that day, the whole Tanaro-valley came to salute the train, hauled by the D345.1055 and "Centoporte" cars (Centoporte=Hundred-doors). A big thanks to the Organisators of this day and to the FS Foundation, that fought for the reopening works of this line.
