Back in 2007 I wrote about this Wegweiser in Baden. It lists hiking distances. Six hours to Zürich. One of these days I will test it out. Not on such a wintry day though.
I wish you all a good week.
Trivia of the week:
Some of you will notice that I'm listing this under week 4 for the year. Those of you in the US will disagree, as your week numbering system puts it at week 5. Another manifestation of the non-metric stance. Causes confusion all around, especially when one uses localization on computers to be able to use American-English spelling without the spell checker going bananas. Luckily there are manual workarounds.
About a year ago I complained about the fact that SBB was replacing all the split-flap displays in the train stations. I liked the split-flap displays.
In October 2015, the enormous one in the Zurich main station was replaced by this electronic version. I have to say that I find the replacement quite acceptable -- easy and nice to read, and extra messages (such as service disruptions, seen here) can be accommodated well.
On a side note, I'm going to try a weekly posting schedule. Let's see how that goes.
