First ERTMS high speed train Milan Bologna

On Sunday 14 the first high speed train of a new generation (ERTMS technology) from Milan to Bologna started its ride! 66 minutes, even if a little trouble with radio communications system happened! At the end of the ride the train was 2 minutes in late. Since Sunday 50 rides per day, at the moment without problems... :-)
And immediately later in Bologna railway station a new countdown started! The new Bologna Firenze in half an hour! Alstom is involved in both plans!
Here you can see some pics of the Technology Site in Bologna, where all the information are constantly kept under control.
Is it the future?
Do you remember the final act of Garfield the movie? :-) Hope not! :-)
