Electric locomotive E.444.032 "Tartaruga" of the Italian State Railways.

■ Perfectly matches the “TEE Roland”
■ Fine metal handrails
■ The machine is used in the international TEE traffic

The locomotives of the FS class E.444 were put into service by the FS as express train locomotives. Due to a ‘name the train’ competition at the FS, these locomotives were painted with a tortoise symbol and from then on were commonly known as “Tartaruga”. Some of the locomotives still bear this small symbol till today. They quickly attained cult status in Italy at the FS, in a similar way as the class 103 in Germany, and hauled express trains throughout the entire country. Over long distances, they achieved in part running performances of 1,500 kilometres per day.
