It was opened on 11 September 1859 as an intermediate station on the Siena-Chiusi railway. In 1872, a new line opened to connect Grosseto and Siena, which branches off the main line here. Until 1927, it was the only connection between the two cities however a new line opened between Siena and Monte Antico, meaning traffic was significantly reduced on the section between here and Monte Antico, eventually closing to regular passenger services in 1994. Since then, regular passenger services have continued to serve this station on journeys between Siena and Chiusi-Chianciano Terme. The station has a turntable, which is occasionally used for steam locomotives that run along the Asciano-Monte Antico railway.
Train services and movementsEdit
