The large lakes lying in the foothills of the Alps

north of Milan and near the border

between Italy and Switzerland

have been popular tourist destinations for over 100 years.

The development of this tourist traffic owes much

to a small railway of which little trace now remains.

This article briefly describes that railway and its history.

A more detailed history (in Italian)

was written in 1984 by Bruno Porta.
