One of the 6.300 V AC-Trains near Galilei 1911

First railways as usual on that time were steam-powered, but 1907 begun the western divison of the national railway, to use electricity for the suburban-trains of Latina (Ciudad), beginning in the Western Station (6.300 V AC, 25 Hz, overhead). This trains there run til 1955, but meanwhile the general system of electric railway-trains was installed with 15.000 V AC, 16,7 Hz.

Tracks for the "Cercaia"-trains

Today nearly all trains of the national railway-network run electric. In Latina (Ciudad) meanwhile is established a net of so called "Cercanias" - trains for local traffic in the outskirs. Most they run on own tracks. The normal frequence of trains dayover is each 15, 20 or 30 minutes. In the peak hours trains run more often. Trains of line # 124 to Saguset run dayover all 12 minutes, in the peak-time all 8 minutes. This relation since 1999 is serviced by the lines ## 104 amd 105.

Net of Cercanias in Latina (Ciudad) in the year 1999

Where run the Cercanias, in most cases the other trains do not stop. Other trains run on theyr own tracks and stops at Cercania-stations only at Bajo Artado and Avenida Espana (lines ## 101 and 102), Alemania (line # 103), Santa Rosa (line # 108), Salinas (lines ## 103 til 106 and 109) inside the boundary of Latina (Ciudad) and then with other trains at the terminus-stations of the lines outside of the city.

Only trains from the Sierra Ponente (train-line # 210) run from Bahia Zigonias parallel to the the tracks of Cercania-line 112 and then from Galilei over the cercania-tracks direct to the Estacion Cental. Inside of the city boundary they only stop at Esposico-Este, Galilei and the city-stations of the Cercania between Galilei and the Central Station. At special stations between Bahia Zigonias and Galilei they overtake the regulary Cercania-trains of the line # 112.

Regulary trains can stop at the Estadio Nacional (National Stadium) at events there. In other times they run through and the 4 platforms for them are closed.

Cercania-net in the future

Net history

First electric trains 1907 from the formerly western station run to the west and southwest. Around 1915 from the other stations of Latina the suburban lines was set on own tracks and under electric power. There are four nets - from the western station to west and southwest, first from the northen station and later the central station to the north, from the central station to the east and from the southern station to the south.

1955 the western net is connected with the eastern net via a tunnel with 4 tracks from Honor de Patria via Nutria, Barrio Vejo, Libertad and Ronda Grande to the Central station. 1999 the northern net is connected with the southern net with a tunnel with 4 tracks via Alameda Nuova (interchange with metro-lines ## 5, 7 and 15) and Piemont (interchange with metro-line # 6).

Meanwhile it is planed to build a new tunnel with two tracs for the lines 101 and 102, to avoid the long way arond the city via Botanico and the stadium without touching the heart of the town with this cercanias. From Bajo Artado this deep laying tunnel shall go via the few stations "Plaza Cinecitta", "Opera", "Libertad", "Bolsa" and "Fabio Megontes" direct to the southern station. The tunnel from the central-station to the southern station then is used only for the lines 103 to 106.

The then not more serviced stations Medio Artado, Alto Artado (Oueste) and Espana soon today have good connections to the city with the metro-net and will be closed or - as Espana - then there can stop the regulary Cordoba-trains. This stations - shown in orange on the map - too can be used at the peak-hours or at events in the nacional-stadium.

Line # 103a from Alemania via Estacion Central to Salinas run between the regulary trains of the line # 103. So this relation is serviced like a metro-line.


The Cercanias are serviced of the latinian railway, the RENFEL (REd Nacional de los Ferrocarils Latinias). Nevertheless in the town-limits of Latina (Ciudad) and in the villages of Juacinta and Villa Massimo you can use this lines with the city-card for metro, streetcar and bus. This boundary is represented with the orange line on the map. The Airport of Latina lay outside this area and it is to pay the RENFEL-Fare. The city of Latina and the RENFEL here have an special agreement for a flat-fare of 4 Latinian pound from every point in the city to the airport.


Newest trains are type "C5", 230 m lang (the platforms are 250 m long). This train can run in times of lesser traffic as a "half-train" with a lenght of 115 m.
