The formerly line # 124 of the "cercanias" of Latina (Cidudad) was the most busy railway-line in Latina. The line connected the southern station of Latina (Ciudad) with the town of Saguset, 87 km away from Latina (Cidudad). Since 1999 the line lost the number 124, because with the new tunnel for the cercania-trains between Latina Sur and Latina Central the cercanias to Saguset gets the numbers 104 and 105.

This line was the first railway-line opened in Latina - in March 1844 the first 13.5 km from Latina-Sur to Salinas and in August 1844 the 73.2 km from Salinas to Saguset. Today here lay 6 or 8 tracks, including two tracks for the AVE-hi-speed-trains (lines 9 and 10).

The line # 124 belongs to the southern net of the latinian cercanias. This "southern" trains all run from the Southern Station (Estacion Sur) to the south or southeast of the city. Til Salinas lines 123 (now 103) and 125 (now 106) run together with line 124 (now 104 and 105) and til Torre Figueras the line 125 (now 106). All trains run with electric power (15 000 V AC with 16 2/3 Hertz).

In Latina-Sur you can get with the metro-lines 7, 8, 9, 11 and 13 in other parts of Latina (Cidudad). In Saguset the metro-lines 2 and 3 connects the station with other parts of the town. The both metro-nets of Latina and Saguset have no connections - it is a gap of nearly 60 km between them.

The AVE-trains run non-stop from Latina-Sur to Saguset in 22 minutes. But this trains can not be used with the normal tickets for the urban transportation system in Latina (Cidudad) and Saguset. The cercania-line # 124 needs 37 minutes between both towns and stops at all stations. Dayover the line run every 12 minutes, in the peak-hours up to all 6 minutes. At late evening and at night the line run every 15 or 30 minutes. This service til today is given, but since 1999 from the cercnia-lines ## 104 and 105.

The standard southbound-timetable 1999 is shown above. The northbound is analog, so that the trains start in Saguset on the minutes 00, 12, 24, 36 and 48.
