Hi Alpenrose -
I have friend who is a pilot for Delta and who has worked in their operations department. When I Switzerland with me, he has been impressed by how well the rail network in Switzerland is managed.
I could not wait to show him the "Start-Route-Ziel" options on the map. He was as impressed and pleased with the concept as I am. I have to say that that feature, though I had not seen it before, does not surprise me. Very Swiss in a combination of efficient design and provide customer oriented travel organization.
Have you found the animated real-time train map, the so-called live timetable? It shows the positions of the trains moving along the routes. Originally it was calculated from the official timetable entries. Now, I note that it corrects for know delays:
fahrplan.sbb.ch/bin/qu ery.exe/en?view=map&SetGlobalOpti onGO_callMapFromPositi on=mapQuery&ChooseFrom Map=yes&
It used to be a program developed by an individual, and apparently it is now run by the SBB.
