The Lazio regional railways network.

The FR6 is a regional rail route. It forms part of the network of the Lazio regional railways (Italian: ferrovie regionali del Lazio), which is operated by Trenitalia, and converges on the city of Rome, Italy.[1]

The route operates over the infrastructure of the Rome–Cassino–Naples railway. Within the territory of the comune of Rome, it plays the role of a commuter railway.[2] It is estimated that on average about 50,000 passengers travel on an FR6 train each day.

The designation FR6 appears only in publicity material (e.g. public transport maps), in the official timetables, and on signs at some stations. The electronic destination boards at stations on the FR6 route show only the designation "R" and the relevant train number.[2]

Route[edit]

The FR6, a radial route, runs from Roma Termini, on the southern perimeter of Rome's city centre, in a south easterly direction, via the Rome–Cassino–Naples railway, to Cassino.[2]

Stations[edit]

The stations on the FR6 are as follows:[3]

Scheduling[edit]

The FR6 route is included in the Trenitalia official timetable M80 Roma–Cassino–Caserta–Napoli.

As of 2012, FR6 services operated between Roma Termini and Cassino on a clock-face schedule once every hour in each direction. The full trip between these two stations is 138 km (86 mi) long, and takes about two hours.[2]
