    Highest point on Swiss transport network without paying extra

    Not the highest one, but the cable car and train from Lauterbrunnen to Mürren is worth a ride. It is quite beautiful. And someone mentioned the schilthorn , it is included in swisspass and the bond museum is worth a visit.

    For me, the most harrowing movie I ever watched is The boy in stripped Pajamas. War is tragic and the loss of innocent young souls shocked me so much. Despite that similar events (different in scales) did happen elsewhere in the world... What's yours?

    I don't think this is a good design ( pseudo Double Deck). I think change the seats to the minimum (side by side) and increase the door each side to 5 doors are better. I think reducing dwell time and increase the frequency of service is the way to improve communing service. However I have to...
