I presume if you had the GESTAPO breathing down your neck and watching everything you would try and keep the trains running to time.

....Mussolini allegedly did improve on time running by the simple expedient of stretching out the running times which will generally result in better time keeping , having said that , it is also correct that Mussoloini's claim is mythical, as a previous contributor indicated.

This raises the question of how you define on time running. ...
By doing it the Swiss or Japanese way :?: :mrgreen:

The latter of these two by defining a performance standard for permitted variance from schedule time, based on statistically validated measurements to deliver process control. We'll know we have arrived at this desireable state when our TOC's are able to publish control charts showing conformance. (Peals of hysterical laughter, not likely to be seen in my lifetime...)
