Strange, here in Belgium we allways think of Switzerland and Zurich as an exemple and model of good public transport... I remember Zurich has got an excellent suburban railway, or do I make a mistake?

Need to revisit Switzerland. I lived and worked there for 2 years, but that's 20years ago... (yes I'm an oldie..)

Depends. Since 1990 when the S-Bahn was inaugurated the metro/suburban Railway can be called excellent (with some expetions). If you mean the S-Bahn, then you are remembering right

I hope you're not incensed if I post some of my pictures in this thread. If they are all "usual" then me.


(Edit: I opened a new thread, so here are only Lake-pics.)

The first of the new ones is this one at the S-Bahnstation Selnau. More to come, yami

@Letzprinz: This is the NZZ-Building at Bellevue next to the opera house...

Subway isn't a restaurant but a cheap American fast food joint I always drive by without looking twice.

In switzerland I would settle for Zürcher Geschnetzeltes, Raklette or cafe de Paris style steak with pomfrittes.

You Europeans think too highly of US fast food crap joints like McD's and Burger King.

Lake, your photographs are some of the most beautiful I have seen!

They are truly spectacular!

Zurich is my favorite city - I need to visit it more often.

If I may ask, what camera do you use?

Again, you are gifted with a special talent.

Thank you.
