Dubious statement[edit]

I tagged the statement: " First, railway timetables do not list seconds; trains always leave the station on the full minute." as it is not true for the UK certainly. Jezhotwells (talk) 09:15, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Untagged - The article does not mention UK railways. It discusses Swiss railways, where the trains really do depart on the stroke of the full minute stated in the timetable. DieSwartzPunkt (talk) 16:57, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

The weird non full minutes thing[edit]

Is also true for German train station clocks, where the (red) second hand "races" to the twelve only to stop waiting for the signal... I am guessing the German design (which looks strikingly similar) is emulating the Swiss one here? 95.90.213.51 (talk) 14:04, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

it was produced by the same Swiss company, when it had been introduced. -- ZH8000 (talk) 14:43, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
