Here are the photos I took while in Italy.
I thought I'd post them here, so you can use them to show people what a train looks like if it has reserved space for bicycles.
It would be a good idea in this country (USA).
Unfortunately, in the USA, Amtrak requires that a bike be boxed. The going excuse is that the Redcaps (baggage porters) don't know how to roll a bike backwards without the chain falling off.
How the heck do you ride a bike to a train station while carrying a box big enough to hold the bike?
