Pesa is supplying 13 ATR 220s for non-electrified lines in Tuscany as part of a €139.6m order for 40 trains placed by Trenitalia in 2013. The first trains entered service on the Pisa – Lucca – Aulla line earlier this year and the final three sets for Tuscany are due to be delivered next month. Eleven of the trains were funded by the regional government, while the remaining two are owned by Trenitalia.
