the other platform, that had not yet received a track hat to be realigned
as you can see in the picture below, the arramgement that had to be done.
The reason for this modification is a very long story ... If it was a single track line this stop would have become a station, with the two tracks rejoining on both sides of the station, with the reactivation of the line it was more convenient to have the two tracks separate, so the two platforms had not to converge.
So the actual junction and the passing tracks are some hundreds meters north, and here the station remain as two platforms along the line.
In the picture below we are at a further stage, after the track 2 had been laid an traffic continued on that one.
Two images of the place before and during the laying
of the second track.
One of the last train to Campo Marte on track 1
And now two images after the end of the work on this end of the station whith the trains passing on track 2. Note on the image below the signal on the background. It is the same that was before on track [only] 1. Note the mention of #PL on that one. they are actually the full share of grade crossing that the line has (a fourth one is in the common section with the Firenze-Roma line, that in turn is the only one in more than 40 km on that line).
Further North the two lines
run parallel, and after a douple crossover (along the grade crossings,
you see the second crossover on the picture below) there is the Posto Movimento
Cionfo , to allow for passing.
Actually all three stops of Salviati, Cure (new one from jumne 2001) and S.Marco Vecchio are considered as "peripherals" of Cionvo (where, as you can easily see, there are no provisions for passenger services)
Below: the line before the doubling. (further images "before" here)
