>> I’ve looked at that site but there’s nothing about reservations for the train. I don’t want to get to the station and find there are no seats left for the train we want to get, so I think we should reserve seats.
Reservations are possible on most, but not all, Centovalli departures. They are possible on the 10:50 panoramic train from Locarno to Domodossola, and can be made on the Centovalli website at a cost of 5,50 Euro. You are a bit early for September reservations, as they are currently only available until 31 August.
Here is the link, and I have included some vocabulary to assist you in completing the transaction:
- Travel document - choose Turistico
- Progressivo biglietto - in this field, put Swiss Travel Pass
- The default is a return journey, so change it to single
The rest should be easy enough to follow.
At the end, what you get is a prenotazione internazionale - international reservation.
If you get the 10:50 train from Locarno, you arrive in Domodossola at 12:36. If you wanted to, instead of getting another train to Brig, a lot of which is in the Simplon Tunnel, you could get the Swiss PostBus #631 over the Simplon Pass to Brig instead.
This bus leaves Domodossola at 12:50, arriving at Brig at 14:31, and it is a very scenic trip through the mountains. If you are interested, you can read my trip report about it under the heading Saas-Fee to Locarno on the following page:
I was travelling in the opposite direction.
