Superb train journey from Domodossola to Locarno. Most amazing scenery. Look up Lago Maggiore Express! This is the second leg of the trip, which includes an express train from Stresa (or other stations), to Domodossola, and a boat trip of almost 3 hours from Locarno...More

The train carriage is a little tight (but then they often are) for this scenic journey that can take a couple of hours as it slowly climbs up to Re and then descends into Switzerland

Exiting train ride between Locarno and Domodossola. A must when you are travelling by train trough Switzerland.

This railway is why we had come back to the area. There really isn't a difference between the regular train and the panoramic train in terms of experience. I would love to see it in the Fall.

Fun trip with beautiful views from the train with many bridges. Maybe a bit long for small children.
