The Lombard regional railway service is gradually coming into operation and is now almost complete. This article proposes a brief review of the project and how the key points of the Lombard railway network were conceived: the Link Line and the symmetrical, cadenced and mnemonic timetable. Now that the system is almost fully operational and that the results are fairly positive in terms of demand, it is possible to make some considerations concerning those missing ‘details’ which would have guaranteed complete success: above all the limited integration in local communities and with the rest of the public transport system. Finally some considerations are also made on how ‘slow’ services with landscape and tourist functions can be inserted in a very complex system.
