I'm not sure if this should be a joke or random, but the SBB train info screen in St. Gallen on platform 5 just decided to interpret the data given a bit differently than intended.

It is not broken and no other screen has that problem. What could it be, I wonder. But I don't care enouht to post it as a question.

I guess random would have been more appropriate.

    @diegoca97 The blue is normal and intended. The text should have been Wattwil.

    SBB Business Model: give me all your Money, I’ll hire more people to do less, we will not improve anything but use those new employees as an argument to make it even more expensive for you next year! Then, because the Government is still somehow involved in the company we‘ll pay less taxes and make sure noone can do shit about it..
    We‘ll also reduce the number of trains, disable ACs to save money and treat our customers like shit.

    Why? Because we made sure we’re the only legal public trail transport company so you can’t do anything about it $$$

    @just8littleBit The ones that manage to get a slice of the pie do it much better. SOB is luxury compared to the shit the SBB pulls.

    @just8littleBit With regard to railway, Switzerland compares to Germany like Japan to Uganda in terms of tech.

    @Fast-Nop yea.. germany is like „maybe we are there, maybe not“. Switzerland is like: „we are always ther. We might skip your stop but we’ll be around. And the ticket from ZH airport to ZH is 30 bucks so you can’t afford it anyway“

    @Fast-Nop I worked in Switzerland for 8 years and had to commute from and to Zurich. NO ONE Can tell me the SBB is good... it was in the 2000s but not anymore. You can agree or disagree. but I’m done with them.

    @just8littleBit I still remember my ICE trip in winter where the heating broke down and I got my warm wool blanket out. The conductor was surprised why I had that, and I smiled that I was a frequent customer. ^^

    @Fast-Nop Nice.. ICEs are Great if you’re prepared. I once slept the whole way from Frankfurt to Hamburg - best sleep I’ve had in months..

    Dont know about now but in 2018 in the SBBs IRs they shut the ACs down (at 39C) to spend less and improve their profits. It was packed, people were standing all the way through the wagons. I’m surprised they didn’t start corona.

    On the other hand, now in ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช I’m always there 20m early because one of the 2 daily busses might arrive early and leave early so I’ll miss it if I’m on time๐Ÿ˜‚
    Different cultures different problems I guess..

    @just8littleBit Well the ICE ACs also shut down in summer because they are misdesigned. It's OK that they can only generate so much difference in temperature, but if the outside temperature is excessive (read: summer, right when you need the AC!), they will instead shut down completely. Piece of shit tech.

    Apart from the the air conditioning stupidity (and the fact that the trains are stupidly warm even in winter), the SBB service is pretty good, though expensive.

    SBB successfully lobbying the federal government to end the work from home directive in the middle of a pandemic though: unforgivable.

    @just8littleBit Also the half fare card can cost 85, 100, 165 or 185CHF depending on some random Bullshit! And even with that some routes have weird pricing. Luzern-Zug costs the same as Luzern-Fribourg despite it being pretty much three times the distance.
