I was last in Como in 2003. I got permission to poke around the property.
The depot was a crumbling mess, but much was unmolested and it was so
cool to see it in its undisturbed state. Hard to believe how far it has come
since then. Had I lived in the area, I would have jumped on the opportunity
to do the work, being in the business. Thanks for the pix, John.
My Italian is rustier than my Spanish, but Como has an Italian origin. There were 20 or so Italian Coal miners here, well just north of current Como, in 1879 and we assume the Railroad pinched the name of their encampment for the new town.
I have been to Lago di Como and we look nothing like that area.
