Irish Rail and 80's style timetable updates

    Last week, it was announced that the 06.30 Galway - Dublin train will now leave 5 minutes earlier and stops in Kildare rather than going non-stop after Tullamore.

    Nothing on their site, even the news section. Timetable for it is still the old one

    https://www.irishrail.ie/IrishRail/media/Timetable-PDF-s/Heuston-timetables/06_dublin-galway.pdf

    So if your not a regular on the train, you'll have missed this news and probably a train or 2.

    You expect this crap in the 80s, but surely a small announcement on their site would work wonders. Whats the most b0ll0cks about it is that they dont mention the departure times for each station on the route either.

    Ah Irish Rail. The only rail operator I ever encountered who sold printed timetable booklets that the ticket office staff actively discouraged the purchase of.

    According to some on here printed timetables are no longer needed since everybody is online. :rolleyes:

    The idea that they could be sold at a profit and advertise the company's services is beyond IE who still print the public all lines timetable for their staff anyway.
