Tilo stands for Ticino-Lombardia and it is a joint venture company running regional cross-border services in Ticino, the Italian speaking Kanton of Switzerland and in Lombardia, the northernmost province of Italy. Tilo is owned jointly by SBB, the Swiss Federal railways and by Trenord, which itself is a joint venture of the Italian State railways Trenitalia and FNM, Ferrovie Nord Milano. Tilo uses Swiss Stadler FLIRT trains of the Swiss class RBe 524 which the Italians call Italian class ETR 524. This is one ETR 524 FLIRT at the station of Bellinzona, in Swiss Ticino.

Some of the Tilo FLIRT trains are four coaches long, some just four. A four plus five coaches long combination of two FLIRT units has here just arrived from Bellinzona and is stopping at the station of Lugano.

This is the newest, more colourful livery of the TILO Stadler FLIRT trains. They are still Swiss trains, but have also an Italian registration.
