Did they still check their tickets after the helicopter fished them out?

The Swiss are really good at trains. Unfortunately they are not as good at making ticket machines with a comprehensible UI. (Somehow I bought half a ticket. How do you buy half a ticket? I don't know, but I did.)

Anyway, the real point of this post is to brag that I get to back to Switzerland in a few weeks and I'm going to attempt to buy the right ticket this time so I don't get the rolley-eyes from the grumpy konduktor.

This is what happens when you use biofuel in your locomotives.  Some plants, like rosemary, just don't contain enough energy per kilo to be efficient.

Now Mussolini, by contrast, made the trains in Italy run on thyme...
