History

The railway was built in 1923 as a line for the transport of goods. It was owned by a company of a founding member of Vilthia.

In the summer period sporadic tourist services were organized. Despite this, the lines had not been used to transport goods for several years. Starting from 2018 the Governorate began to consider the idea of suspending the maintenance of the railway network, which weighed on the budget for about 4000 to 6000 euros per year. In 2019, the budget for the maintenance of the railway lines has been cut and the railway was officially closed with a decree issued by the Sovereign.
The tracks and stations remain a property of the Central Protectorate.

The rolling stock is stored in a warehouse located in a tunnel. From here on, the railroad continues for a hundred meters in Italian territory, after which the tracks were removed.

Repair of the Pendolino
