Hello capetonian

Next time you’re in Italy, try out the new and privately-run NTV train company.

It is acquiring a fleet of the newest Alstrom AGV trains.

In my opinion these are the best looking high-speed trains which is understandable when you consider that Giugiaro was involved in their design.

NTV is what’s known as an ‘open access’ operator. It is taking advantage of EU rules which allow other companies to compete with the national rail firms.
