Road Name History:
Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane S.p.A. (reporting marks: FS), previously Ferrovie dello Stato, is a state-owned holding company that manages infrastructure and services on the Italian rail network (English: Italian State Railways).
Ferrovie dello Stato was founded in 1905, and marked an important milestone in the process of the unification of Italy.
In 2000, to comply with European regulations, the company's two main divisions, service and infrastructure, were separated and two different independent companies were created: Trenitalia, responsible for transport service, and Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), responsible for the management of the rail infrastructure. Both companies were still subsidiaries of Ferrovie dello Stato Holding SpA.
In 2017, Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane acquired 100% of TrainOSE, the Greek national railways.

Brand/Importer Information:
Founded in 1906 by Karl Arnold in Nürnberg, K. Arnold & Co. began its life producing tin toys and related items. They produced an extensive line of model ships, doll house items and other toys. In 1935, K. Arnold & Co. hired Max Ernst as their managing director. Ernst, not to be confused with the German realist artist of the same name, was a significant factor in the future of Arnold.

On Max Ernst's 1976 retirement, Arnold employed perhaps 200 to 250 people, using three facilities in the Nuernberg area. The Company continued under family control until 1995, when Arnold went into bankruptcy and was sold to Rivarossi of Italy. Rivarossi, in turn, also went bankrupt, leading to the sale of all assets to Hornby of the United Kingdom. Production is carried out in China.
