I just got back from Switzerland where I traveled only by foot and train for a week. Visiting the mountain towns of Zermatt & Crans-Montana I rode the mainline from Geneva through the Rhone River Valley into the mountains. The line from Visp to Zermatt features narrow gauge trains which engage a cog on select steep sections of track. The Gornergrat / Matterhorn Bahn is 100% narrow gauge/cog from Zermatt to 3100 meters above sea level at Gornergrat. Amazingly, this line was built in 1898! There are tiny battery powered electric trains that connect this line to the Rifflealp Hotel. There is an underground funicular cable railway connecting Zermatt with the ski station at Sonnegga. Crans-Montana can be accessed from Sierre by a funicular cable railway built in 1911.

Sobering reading for anyone, especially anyone within a thousand miles of Seattle.

Dave read that before bed last night...not a good time for such a read. I read it this morning. They say everything west of I-5 will be toast. Well, we're about half a mile east of I-5 and at 170' altitude. Do you think that's enough? Just kidding, of course. Downtown Oly, which is on that fill that liquifies in a quake, will be gone in the scenario the article describes. As for the rest...would we want to live through such a disaster? Maybe not...

Every kind of brush you can imagine and many you might never have imagined. Brushes for champagne flutes and Weißbier glasses! Nice old wooden & bristle brushes, even metal dustpan like the old days.
