Confused re train schedule to Camogli

We will be in Genoa next month, and plan to take the morning train to Camogli.

The train schedule lists the first departure time at 0923, GE PP. The next time listed in that column is 1129.

Under "change station" heading, times of 1004 and 1103 are listed with notation "GE PP.S"

I presume this means there are trains leaving Genoa at 1104 and 1103, but from the underground, while the 0923 and 1129 leave from the above-ground station?

Also, can we purchase tickets at the station?

Thanks.

Hi md115

are you looking at the trenitalia website? and what date are you using?

I see trains leaving at 9:04, 9:29, and 10:57 from Genova Piazza Principe (GE PP)

I used the date of the 25th of this month to see the options. The trains don't vary too much day to day except for on Sunday when they maybe less frequent.

yes, you can purchase tickets at the station, this is is regional train trip so make sure you validate your ticket at one the small yellow boxes on the platform before getting on the train.

Yes, I'm looking at their website, but the date is Monday, August 16.

Your first interpretation is correct. Trains leaving from GE PP leave from Genova Piazza Principe, the ground level tracks. Trains leaving from GE PP S leave from Genova Piazza Principe Sotteraneo, the underground tracks in the same station which are a couple of minutes walk down in the same place as the main station. Note that Sotteraneo is not the adjacent underground Metro statiion, which is a different line altogether.

All these trains will also call at Genova Brignole, if you are that side of the city.
