FS Fiat ALn556 railcars at Tirano in 1978

Cars ALn556.1276 and ALn556.1207. The line from Sondrio to Tirano had apparently been worked by such railcars since the 3-phase electrification system of the Ferrovia Valtellina went out of use (some overhead line equipment can be seen on the right), but at the time of our visit was closed entirely for reconstruction, with a substitute bus service (poorly advertised at Sondrio, as far as English-speaking visitors were concerned).
