Swiss trains

I'm on the train from Zurich right now and as we're approaching Bern there's this announcement: "We're approaching Bern and we are sorry for the delay of 3 minutes. "

Yes, trains in Switzerland are always punctual they actually apologize when they are 3 minutes late. Three minutes!

Update: I spoke too soon. The train has stopped now due to a problem in one of the stations and it's been sitting idle for half an hour already. Only now does it start moving again.
