I ended up finding out about that line this morning. It looks like Monza is 2:20 long and Lugano is 1:05 long for a total of 3:25 time on train. This is only 25 mins longer than the bus. add another 25 mins between trains. I assume both trains do have bathrooms on board. Although if you don't want to explore Tirano and want more time in Lugano the train gets you into Lugano and 15:58 vs 17:30 for the bus. So 1:30 more time in Lugano.
You do need to book 2 different train tickets as the first leg is on Trenitalia and the second leg is on Trenord.
I am a little hesitant to book the train right now as I have only read horrible reviews about the train service Trenord.
Does anyone have any experience on Trenord from Monza-Lugano??
