Mind the gap, Stand clear of the doors please
Of course the reason the Swiss trains run on time is they have no passengers. Standing on Brunau station this morning the in-bound, peak rush-hour, commuter train was half empty. Nobody had to stand and most triple seats had the middle seat empty. Try that on the 08:13 Wandsworth Town to Waterloo. You are lucky if you can shove your way onto the train at all. I have had to let three trains go before I could even get on, never mind a seat.
