Volvo / Hess 119. Lugano The system has a number of really photogenic spots where it is possible to get some really scenic views. Unfortunately the day I was they it was showery and very hazy. Even so I did manage to get one scenic shot. This view is from the Castagnola terminus looking back down the route. In the background can be seen (just) Lugano itself. Below is seen Volvo / Hess 119 on it's way to the terminus. Text and photo by Richard Stedall.
