Riva del Garda, Italy

Recommended Posts

There used to be a narrow gauge line from Riva to the standard gauge at Mori, which closed down way back in the early 1930s. In those days this part of Italy was actually part of Austria, therefore this railway owes much (if not all) to the same circumstances which saw many rural narrow gauge systems spring up in the overall Austrian / Hungarian area.

 

The old station has been preserved and interesting material relating to the line's history are in the local museum.

 

Here are a few pictures, in the hope of being of use to someone modelling Northern Italy or Austria...

 

First, a model of a coach off the line in the museum.
