The “Foliage Train,” known locally as the Centovalli (100 Valleys), runs 52 kilometers between Domodossola, Italy, and Locarno, Switzerland. It operates from mid-October to mid-November each year, when the trees begin to shed their leaves. Each car features full-length windows.

The 2-hour trip crosses 83 bridges and goes through 31 tunnels, with stops in the towns of Camedo and Intragna. A round-trip ticket, costing 43 (near $51) first class or 33 second class, is valid for two days and allows for on/off privileges. Visit www.vigezzinacentovalli.com/en.
