Although Swiss trains are the most punctual in Europe – a recent passenger survey showed many are unhappy with the performance.

The train company is being plagued by a driver shortage and late delivery of new rolling stock.

Managers say they have to balance the need of the passengers with safety – especially after the death of a conductor earlier this year when he was trapped by a train door.
