  • I've noticed a tendency that trains that are already late, to never pick up the slack, but instead, are delayed even more to let the trains that aren't late, run normally.

    So I would prefer not to border a train that's already late. The more it's late, the more reluctant I'd be.

    Which train is claimed to arrive there fastest, meaning, with the least time between scheduled departure and arrival? Sometimes, trains that leave later still arrive earlier, depending on the number of intermediate stops they make. That would be the train I'd favour.
    • For both trains, A was the point of origin. The train on the left "arrived" first, but both trains came in from the other direction.

      It would have been very unlikely that the train leaving last would overtake the train leaving first, given the route.

      Eventually, it didn't matter. I waited on the platform, watching the signals, and boarded the train that got the green light first. But it arrived at B after my connecting train left, and both trains arrived in B before the next connecting train.
