    Changed description to Train &amp; Luggage Query.Hi,In September 2018 my friend and I are travelling through Europe and wish to say catch a train from Annecy to Vevey and hop off for a few hours then hop back on a train to continue to Lake Como – would we have to get 2 separate rail tickets?We have a few other rail trips that we want to do this with but they are with large expanses of day’s in-between, so a rail ticket of 3 days etc. is no good to us.Also at the railway stations do they supply lockers to put your suitcases in when you just come to town for a few hours?I would appreciate any advice on the above.Thank you
