It is also an occasion to visit places normally closed to the public. One of them is the Deposito Rotabili Storici di Pistoia (Pistoia rolling stock workshops and depot) where FS (Italian State Railways) steam, diesel and electric locomotives have been safeguarded for over 150 years. Among them, there are unique pieces such as the 741.120 dating back to the 1920s and modified in 1958, the only locomotive in the world provided with the “Franco Crosti” patented system which is still in working condition today. Or the D 342.4010, the only hydraulic diesel locomotive of the 1950s that is still operating.
The trail includes a visit of the royal waiting room specially built for King Victor Emmanuel II, hence the coat of arms of the House of Savoy in the room.
