There is a narrow gauge rail linking two European cities, Domodossola in Italy with Locarno in Switzerland. It is the Vigezzina railway, which crosses Val Vigezzo, also known as The Valley of Painters ...The operation of the line is entrusted to the Italian company SSIF (Società Subalpina Imprese Ferroviarie S.p.A.) and to the Swiss FART (Ferrovie Autolinee Regionali Ticinesi). The line stretches for 52 Km between the splendid landscape of the Italo-Swiss valleys, and to make the most of it were constructed panoramic trains from the Skoda. Here we see the direct train D678 Locarno - Domodossola while entering Malesco station, in Italian territory. The train is made up of the pilot's engine ABe4/4 Pp 81 "Domodossola", the mid-engine Be4/4 Pi 88, the P-811 trailer and the pilot's engine Be4/4 Pp 84 "Craveggia".

The classic alpine panorama welcomes the passage of H 2/3 n°17 of the Rigi Bahn with its historic train in transit near Staffell station.The Rigi Bahn is the first rack railway built in Europe. It is formed by two lines that reach the summit of the Rigi mountain from Vitznau,located on the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee),and Arth-Goldau on the opposite side of the mountain.The two lines intersect at the Staffell station and continue to flank up to Rigi Kulm, the final destination of the trip.

E483.019 of Arenaways passing across the bridge over the Tanaro, in the entrance to the station in Alessandria, is driving the Autoslaaptrein of EETC, the night express with cars carrying Dutch tourists in Italy. Alessandria was one of the final destinations of the trip, also because it has a ramp for the descent of cars.
