Belluno railway station (Italian: Stazione di Belluno) serves the town and comune of Belluno, in the Veneto region, northeastern Italy. Opened in 1912, it forms part of the Calalzo–Padua railway.

The station is currently owned by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). The commercial area of the passenger building is managed by Centostazioni. Train services to and from the station are regional trains operated by Trenitalia. Each of these companies is a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), Italy's state-owned rail company.

History[edit]

The first Belluno railway station, located in Piazza Cesare Battisti, was opened on 11 November 1886, on completion of the Belluno-Cornuda portion of the historical line Belluno–Montebelluna–Treviso.[1]

The current station was opened in 1912, upon the activation of the first leg (up to Longarone) of the Calalzo–Padua railway. The passenger building, which was a project of the architect Roberto Narducci, was constructed in 1928.

Features[edit]

The station platforms and yard

There are four tracks running through the station. Three of them are equipped with platforms. Additionally, the station has three sidings used to store trains.

Passenger and train movements[edit]

The station has about one million passenger movements each year.[2]

Trains depart from Belluno for Padua, Calalzo and, less frequently, Venezia.
