Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The website still talks about Cisalpino trains. Any idea whether the end of Cisalpino will have any effect on the technology?

None at all.

  1. Cisalpino's trains are to continue to be run by SBB resp. FS.
  2. Even if the new ETR610 Pendolinos continue to be troubled, no tilt technology needed in the NEAT tunnels.
  3. If the ETR610 are retired for whatever reason, what could be a result is that there will be no need for 250 km/h 'paths' [e.g. schedule slots], which would increase tunnel capacity. However, opening of the tunnels is still so far away that new 250 km/h capable trains could be purchased by then. (Or, who knows, some other operator -- DB, SNCF, Italy's new private NTV -- might request extended runs acorss the tunnel for their proper high-speed trains.)
