Transporting at Termini

Nothing interesting or elevating about flying the Atlantic on United, but a few hours to kill at Rome's Termini Rail Station is always entertaining. After breakfast at a fast food joint -- even rail station quick stops have good cappuccino in Italy -- I switched to an earlier train to Formia. The Palermo Regional seemed to be the longest haul train stopping in Formia. But they must assign equipment according to the destination and not the distance. Instead of the red bullet train, I got the ancient wheezer in the second picture (the train, not the guy, but they seemed to be something of a pair). Oh, well, I'll be in Formia in 45 minutes.
