planes 

 arrive in Zurich Sept 9  10:30AM ( leave Zurich airport on train at 12:02, arrive in Murren at 2 minutes before 3) 

 depart Zurich Sept 22 1:30PM  ( leave the hotel on the 8:50 train, arrive at the Zurich airport at 11:00)

             Drastic drop in airline tickets convinced the old timers to take the plunge and buy the tickets. The best price was for no checked bags. Swiss hikers need backpacks, cheese, bread, and hiking poles. They do not need checked bags. Diane was at the keyboard. We all have checked bags.
