Early flight Zurich airport - tight travel time

I have looked at past threads and I've seen that 1 hour to get through Zurich airport should be OK with just carry-on, but just wanted to check what people's opinions were on this particular situation:

I have a flight at 06.55 from Zurich Airport to Amsterdam.

I need to travel from Affoltern am Albis; the earliest train leaves (I believe) at 05.19 to Alstetten with 2 minutes to switch platform on to the IR, arriving at the airport at 05.56. If I miss the connection I assume I will have to get a taxi as there doesn't seem to be another train that will get me there on time.

In your experience(s), is this all a little bit too tight?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Early flight Zurich airport - tight travel time

It takes me often 15 minutes to get from the bus station to the gate so you should be fine. Calculate boarding time as from 20-25 minutes before flight time, i.e. 6.30.
