Campobasso railway station (Italian: Stazione di Campobasso) serves the city and comune of Campobasso, in the region of Molise, southern Italy. Opened in 1883, it is located on the Termoli–Venafro railway.

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

Location[edit]

Campobasso railway station is situated at Piazza Vincenzo Cuoco, close to the city centre.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 5 August 1883, upon the inauguration of the Baranello–Campobasso section of the Termoli–Venafro railway and the Benevento–Campobasso railway.[1]

Features[edit]

The platform side of the passenger building

The station has a passenger building arranged on multiple levels. It houses the ticket office, waiting room, a kiosk, a restaurant and the headquarters of the Railway Police.

The station is attended, and therefore has a room for the management of train movements.

In the station yard are three through tracks used for passenger services. These tracks are served by two platforms and connected by a pedestrian underpass.

There are other tracks passing through the goods yard, which is equipped with a detached workshop. The station also has a goods shed and locomotive depot.

Passenger and train movements[edit]

The station has about one million passenger movements each year.[2] The majority of the passengers use the Termoli–Vairano railway; the Benevento–Campobasso railway has relatively little traffic.

All passenger trains passing through the station stop there. The station is also the originating or terminating point of many trains. The main destinations are Termoli, Roma Termini, Napoli Centrale, Benevento and Pescara Centrale.
