PT Problem of the Day: Some trains consistently run early

Train ready to depart, but the timetable isn't

Since the May timetable changes, some trains have been given too much slack in the timetable, and regularly either depart early or wait for up to two minutes at stations.

It could be argued that some extra time was needed to make the timetables more reliable, but if the same train is consistently waiting for the timetable to catch up, it seems it’s gone too far.
