Is it Thal near St Gallen? Thal is the name of both a village and municipality. The municipality also includes the villages of Altenrhein, Buechen, Buriet and Staad.
Bus 242 has 3 stops in the village of Thal:
- Thal, alte Post (old post office)
There is a church and cemetery between the alte Post and Löwen stops, which may or may not be the one you want (see attached aerial shot). It is called Paritätische Kirche and has apparently been shared by Catholics and Protestants since 1532.
Bus 242 runs between St. Gallen, Bahnhof (railway station) and Rheineck, Bahnhof. En route, it also stops at Rorschach Stadt, Bahnhof, so you could join it at any of those stations. If you got on in Rorschach Stadt, you'd need the bus travelling in the direction of Rheineck, Bahnhof.
Thal is closest to Rheineck, but the Swiss Timetable will give you the fastest route from Zürich to Thal, which would start off with a train to St Gallen. From St Gallen, you would either
- get straight onto bus 242
- travel further by train to Rorschach Stadt, and then transfer to bus 242.
- travel further by train to Rheineck, and then transfer to bus 242.
The fastest option seems to vary by time of day, so let the Swiss Timetable guide you unless you particularly want to travel the full bus route from St Gallen.
