Did many trains use the Nationalbahn, or did they mostly come through Baden?
AFAIK no trains used the Nationalbahn. I had never been on that line before the opening of the Heitersberg.

In 1981 - before Taktfahrplan - there was a Städteschnellzug roughly every two hours nonstop Bern - Zürich taking 79 min. About 7 train pairs called at Lenzburg, most of them to/from Biel/Bienne (-Lausanne-Genéve)

All other fast trains still went through Baden. That were 34 fast trains on a weekday, leaving from Zürich HB between 0446 and 2320!

Not too impressing. ;-)
