Photographer's Note

1° November 1926, eighty years ago, the girls of Norcia accompanied to the station the first train in arrival (see ws)
After thirthyeight years from the closing the Railroad with its bridges, its viadotti, the cases, the stations remain like testimony of the taste of an age, like “capolavoro” of railway engineering, dared work, perfectly integrated in the surrounding atmosphere, of which for many backs it constitutes the natural completion. The maximum altitude of the tracing is of single 625 meters on the level of the sea (Caprareccia gallery) but the line, for the configuration of the territories crosses to you, has all the characteristics of a tracing of high mountain.
It is an irrenounceable but always discreet presence that testifies the courage still today and the firm will of the men who at the beginning of the century intentional and have undertaken this work.

Exceeded the small building dedicated to Saint Peter, it goes it them is shrunk and the slopes from sweetly descendants they become sour and full of rocks. After the graceful and panoramic gallery to bows of Tight Step it is reached here the little station with the same name and the two contiguous galleries of the Slabs, in the photo, that they pierce cliffs to peak on the Nera river.
