Train from Montreux to Lake Como - comments please

We are staying in Montreux unitl July 25th when we want to get the train to Tremezzo on Lake Como. We want to take a fairly scenic route and have identified Montreux to Brig, then on to Domodossola, then Milan and finally to Bellano, finishhing the journey with a ferry across the lake.

The alternative seems to be direct to Milan then on to Bellano

We would be really grateful for any comments on this option, or alternative routes avoiding Milan. ( We have looked at going via Chur but don't seem to be able to do the whole route in one day goint that way)

Many thanks

If you depart Montreux at 08.36 on the train to Milan as far ad Domodossola you can take the narrow gauge railway to Locarno then taking the FFS train for Giubiasco for a direct train to Como then walk down into the town for the boat to Bellona depart 15,30 arrive 18.25

Thank you very much for that idea, we will have a look at that.

We are headingh home at the end of our hol from Como to Zurich on the train so were trying to avoid duplicating trains in/ out of Como but think that is a different line?

Many thanks for your help, very excited about the holiday!
