Tirano railway station (RFI) is one of two railway stations within the town and comune of Tirano, in the region of Lombardy, northern Italy. Opened in 1902, it is the terminus of the Tirano–Lecco railway.

Contents

The station is currently managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). Train services are operated by the Lombard railway company Trenord.

Location

Tirano (RFI) is situated at the southern side of Piazzale Stazione (Station Square) within the town centre. Tirano's other railway station, Tirano (RhB), is located at the next building on the left and at the western side of the same square.

History

The station was opened on 29 June 1902, upon the inauguration of the Alta Valtellina (Upper Tellina Valley) railway. [1] It was operated initially by the Società Ferrovia Alta Valtellina (FAV) (English: Alta Valtellina Railway Company).

Upon nationalisation of the Italian railways on 1 July 1905, the Alta Valtellina line remained in private ownership. The Ferrovie della Stato (FS), Italy's state-owned railway operator, did not assume ownership of the line until 1970.

Architecture

The ground floor of the passenger building has various services, including a waiting room, ticket office and Trenord Cargo office. From the waiting room, there is access to the upper floors and the now abandoned and unused dormitory rooms.
