Now the personal thing, sorry, but as it was posted to everybody, I have to
post the answer to everybody:
The impecisions did not hurt me, I just think that we should have
informations as precise as possible on SwissRail. We can leave imprecisions
to newspaper, television and the like. There you will find plenty of it
anyway... If you found all these imprecise informations in a book, I would
not recommend this book. I think there are enough books about Swiss
railways, that are precise.
Still two points:
1. Those people in Switzerland who speak about SBB as privatized, they
really think that. What means, they do not know the reality. SBB is not
private, definitely not. British Rail was privatized.
2. Busses starting from the Geneva bus station are NOT ALLOWED to take
passengers for a ride within Switzerland!

-Private or independent company, the most of the Swiss don't see theGenï¿½ve - La Plaine is an "RER" (S-Bahn) which, in this case means "Rhï¿½ne
Express Rï¿½gional" instead of the official "Rï¿½seau Express Rï¿½gional". In any
case, the train numbers are from the series for S-Bahn trains (15000 Genï¿½ve
and Berne, 17000 Basel, 18000/19000 Zï¿½rich).
