Newspaper about the 1893 disaster of Limito.

In the early 2000s, with the quadrupling of the line and the launch of the suburban railway of Milan, the station was upgraded and expanded, becoming an interchange point between the regional and suburban trains. The station also has a new passenger building, built next to the original one, dating from the construction of the line. The new passenger building was opened on 22 May 2011.

It became a place of 25 January 2018 train derailment which left 2 people dead and over 100 injured.[2] Another, even more bloody accident had taken place on November 28, 1893, with 40 people dead and 22 injured.
