Lucerne to Milan in 6 hours via the Gotthardbahn

An early postcard although it has a postmark of 1982 from the Verkehrshaus der Schweiz in Lucerne (Luzern).  The fastest trains today can do the trip from Lucerne to Milan in about 3.5 hours.

The main scene, however, seems to show Mt Vesuvius in the Bay of Naples, which even today would require at least another 10 hours of travel from Milan.
