Trenitalia is retiring its last three Eurostar Italia (ES) trains

Beginning Sunday, December 9, 2012, Trenitalia is retiring its last three Eurostar Italia ("ES") trains, which operated between Roma Termini and Reggio Calabria, and Roma Termini and Foligno/Falconara Marittima/Rimini/Ravenna.

The three "ES" trains on these routes will be replaced by Frecciabianca trains (Roma/Reggio Calabria will continue to also have several Intercity and one Frecciargento train).

For the Winter 2012/2013 schedule, there will be a total of 226 (roundtrip) Freccia trains: 84 Frecciarossa, 58 Frecciargento, and 84 Frecciabianca. These fast trains will reflect increased service on many routes, as is more fully explained in the hyperlinked press release:

In addition, the older and cheaper Intercity trains will continue to operate on many medium and long-distance routes within Italy (including between Rome and Sicily).
