S26 (ZVV) - Route


  • S 26 Winterthur HB – Bauma – Rüti ZH

Also known as the Tösstalbahn, the line runs from the south end of the Zürichsee (Lake Zürich) in Rapperswil – through the Zürcher Oberland partly following Jona river – on the eastern side of the Canton of Zürich – then through the Tösstal (Töss valley) to the other terminus in Winterthur. Due to a lack of paths after the S 15 was opened, the S 26 runs only between Winterthur and Rüti ZH.

Famous quotes containing the word route:

    A Route of Evanescence
    With a revolving Wheel—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    A route differs from a road not only because it is solely intended for vehicles, but also because it is merely a line that connects one point with another. A route has no meaning in itself; its meaning derives entirely from the two points that it connects. A road is a tribute to space. Every stretch of road has meaning in itself and invites us to stop. A route is the triumphant devaluation of space, which thanks to it has been reduced to a mere obstacle to human movement and a waste of time.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    By a route obscure and lonely,
    Haunted by ill angels only,
    Where an eidolon, named Night,
    On a black throne reigns upright,
    I have reached these lands but newly
    From an ultimate dim Thule—
    From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
    Out of space—out of time.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
