Brescia railway station (Italian: Stazione di Brescia) serves the city and comune of Brescia, in the region of Lombardy, northern Italy. Opened in 1854, the station forms part of the Milan–Venice railway. It is also the terminus of secondary lines from Cremona, Lecco and Parma, as well as the Brescia–Iseo–Edolo railway.

The station is currently managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). The commercial area of the passenger building, however, is managed by Centostazioni. These companies are subsidiaries of FS, Italy's state-owned rail company. Train services are operated by Trenitalia, Trenord and Thello.

The station has about 20 million passenger movements each year. Work has begun in preparation for the high-speed line between Treviglio and Brescia (construction work will be completed at the end of 2016), which is part of the future Milan-Verona high-speed railway.

Location

Brescia railway station is situated at Viale della Stazione, at the south-western edge of the city centre.

History

Built as a project of the engineer Benedetto Foix, the station was opened on 24 April 1854, upon the inauguration of the Coccaglio - Verona section of the Milan–Venice railway.

Features

The passenger building is of a neoclassical style, influenced by neo-Roman elements and medieval style fortifications.

The station yard is equipped with eleven tracks reserved for passenger traffic, three of which are included in the so-called West Yard (Italian: Piazzale Ovest), which is dedicated to arrivals and departures of trains on the Brescia–Iseo–Edolo railway.

Of the other seven tracks, the first track is generally reserved for trains coming from Milan and heading towards Verona and Venice, while track two is for trains in the reverse direction. Tracks three to seven are dedicated to arrivals and departures of the three Trenord regional rail lines, namely the Brescia–Cremona railway, the Lecco–Brescia railway and the Brescia–Parma railway. Finally, there is a track (called "2° Est") used for some services on the Brescia-Parma line.

Some of the tracks not used for passenger services are dedicated to goods trains to and from Brescia Scalo, while others are used for the storage of rolling stock.
