Isn't it amazing how overseas they expect, and get, a bit more responsibility from the passengers? Starting with walking up or out to the platforms without any kind of check, it's your responsibility to check the loading diagrams and be sure you are in the correct car for both Class and destination.
I must confess, last August '17, I got "put off" half way between Munich and Salzburg by a German Conductrix that central casting sent over to play a part in a Nazi era film. She knew about as much English as I know German, but with the help of a "terp", I only had a ticket good for a "regional" (Meridian), and I was on a Euro City. "It’s just a train going to Salzburg and I'm in Second Class" was to no avail, so when it got to Rosenheim, there was Brunhilde to put, might say push, me off.
Oh well, there was nice train viewing and some nice English speaking girls to talk with - and keep me company on the rest of the trip to Salzburg, where they were off to go camping (be assured their idea of camping and mine - Camp IHG - were two different things).
