Torino / Turin to Genova / Genoa by train

In common with many of the rail routes between Italian cities, when taking the train from Turin/Torino to Genoa/Genova, there is a choice between
(1) travelling by the express trains, which if booked ahead, are a little more expensive than taking the Regionale trains.
(2) travelling by those slower Regionale trains, which tend to be cheaper; with more substantial savings to be made if you book last minute at the station.

All of the trains take the same route, departing from Torino Porta Nuova station, as there isn't a high speed line between Turin and Genoa.
The trains on this route don't call at Torino Porta Susa station.
