Railway Garden Competition - Abroad

This from Tb...

This view of Alstetten in Zurich just shows how poor the Swiss railways are compared to Britain.

Note that there is no garden to admire between the extended service intervals and no fence to lean on at the platform end.

Also there are no signs telling me what I can and cannot do - help!

In the panic that such unbounded freedom causes, I realised that Network Rail should offer it's consultancy services to help the Swiss correct both their poorly maintained infrastructure and lackluster punctuality record, for which they are rightly pilloried.

if they try hard enough, they too can achieve post Hatfield levels of performance?
