Re: Finally got caught on the train 80CHF fine

At Luzern just before the train left, a family got into the first class carriage I was sitting in. They had loads of luggage, including one very large suitcase. They started to walk through to second class, but the conductor stopped them as they were clearly struggling.

He told them to stay where they were, then at the next stop, they could get off and make their way to 2nd class along the platform. He assured them that he'd hold the train until they'd made the move.

Which was nice.

Why? I would agree on making it smaller as it never seems fully occupied, but abolish it? I don't understand why you would want that.

Probably because he can’t afford to use it.

A bit annoyed at myself - I had a ticket but accidentally sat in the 1st class. I realised just as the train started to move and I got up to move to a 2nd class area but the inspector came and fined me as I was already in the 1st class area.

He gave me a ticket and pointed out a phone number to call but I couldn't make out whether he was saying I could call to get an explanation of the fine or should call to explain the situation with a view to getting a reduction. Anyone had experience of this and whether it is worth trying to get a reduction?

I was actually wondering if I would have been better off not getting a ticket at all since this would have offset the 80CHF fine? Maybe lost_inbroad is onto something after all?
Don't try that again. It will now cost 100CHF
