I would say yes it is cutting it a bit fine because if you're incoming train is even a couple of minutes late you'll miss the connection, Swiss trains are known for their punctuality but i wouldn't risk it.
Thanks. Do you know if its a big station. There's a later train about 35 mins later.
Bellinzona station is not big.
If you miss the connection in Bellinzona, just take the next train - unless you absolutely have to be in Como at certain time, this just means that you sit down for a coffee and wait for the next train 30 or 60 min later.
Or, as you're going via Zurich, simply take one of the many direct trains from Zurich to Como. If booking in advance, these provide cheaper travel than changing in Bellinzona, as there are special deals from http://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html which are only available on the direct trains.Edited: 7:26 am, February 13, 2013
Oh good. Thanks.
Thanks for the tip. Just that rail companies don't want you to have less than 10 mins to change trains.
For very good reasons. Even in Switzerland, trains can sometimes be a few minutes late. And much more so if they are coming from other countries.
