Occupancy indicators on SBB timetables
When the occupancy indicators show "Very high occupancy levels expected" does this mean that there's a chance we won't get on the train, or just that we're not likely to find any seats. Do Swiss trains have limits on numbers or is it like here in the UK where we just squeeze onto a train?
