Cisalpino will cease operating on December 13, when SBB and Trenitalia
will begin operating independently with each company taking over
responsibility for trains at the border. Half of Cisalpino's 40 staff
will transfer to SBB with the remainder going to Trenitialia.
Cisalpino's original fleet of nine nine-car ETR 470 Pendolino tilting
trains will be split between the two railways, with five going to
Trenitalia and four to SBB. The new fleet of 14 ETR 610 trains will
also be divided equally.
