Random SBB train service

Normally, I can get the last train home at 00.17 from Zurich to
Schaffhausen. Yesterday, for some reason this train wasn't running and instead the last train was at 23.48. Not great, since I found this out at exactly 23.48.

I see that the next few Thursdays the train is running again. Anyone know why there is this train weirdness and how to avoid in future short of checking every time you want to travel?

I always check my train beforehand. Most of the time, the timetable was the same but sometimes there were changes and I would have been mad if I wouldn't have checked.

Re: Random SBB train service

thanks. that shows up the works that have been going on for several months and for today you can see there is a replacement bus for part of the journey for the 00.17 train. the strange thing is that this train was running wednesday and earlier and today onwards, but just yesterday it isn't listed on the timetable and there's no note mentioning cancellation etc.

Re: Random SBB train service

Off the top of my head, 2 solutions:

1. Never leave Schauwhatyamacallitsen.
2. Move to Zurich.

Simples.
