Santa Margherita Ligure to Lake Como by train

What would be the best way to get from Santa Margherita Ligure to Lake Como? I am having trouble finding a rental car in SM, and don't really need one in Lake Como, so wondered about the train? Do you have to go via Genoa/Milan? Any ideas would be appreciated!

It doesn't look like anyone replied to you, so I will. Yes, you can take a train from SML to Como, and yes, you will have to go back to Milan to do it (via Genoa). Seemslike a long way to go, but not as bad as it sounds, since there are plenty of options time wise.

The schedules are with Trenitalia - the official Italian rail system.
