Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori (NTV)

Soon to be running between Turin and Salerno, the NTV was unveiled (okay, about a month ago) in Italy. The service uses the French AGV and is scheduled to start in Mark 2012. There’s no doubt that the train looks stunning inside and outside, and most importantly is the first use of the AGV on main line operation. According to SMH…

NTV plans to run up to 50 services a day as the first operator to use the AGV high-speed trains built by French transport and power engineering group Alstom.
