Swiss Railways

We just returned from Switzerland and the IT08.rail conference. As part of the conference we traveled to see the new Loetschberg alpine basis tunnel. The Swiss railway network (and buses, boats, cable cars) never ceases to astound me, it's simply magnificent in every respect. It's simply a pleasure to ride and takes you everywhere you could ever want to go. What a lesson for other countries and regions.

Even after 21 years, the Swiss public transport system and especially the trains continue to amaze me. Yet the IT08 conference showed that those in charge believe they can still make the system a little better.
