I don't know of this movement, can you provide details? a link perhaps? It would be interesting to see what they have to say for myself, I'm anti wasting tax payers money on pie in the sky projects. I'd support re-opening a line such as Foynes where there is a traffic flow in the offing, but to op

as with what happens in the UK, what happens in France is irrelevant. If you don't want a long-winded debate, why bring France into ?

If you half the fares and double the passengers numbers does that make the line more worthwhile somehow? does it make the €100 million expenditure more worthwhile? does it cut the loss made? How many short of the projections is the passenger figure currently? Has it reached even half of that proj

Do you really think Guinness would ship beer to Claremorris and then down the WRC to Tuam and Galway? Whatever economic sense a hub at Claremorris may make,(and quite possibly it does given extra freight to there could be piggybacked onto the Ballina operation) it wont make any sense to invest in re

I agree freight only routes are usueful and cheap, but can the nation afford to pay for this unless there is a lot of extra traffic on offer? Th uK is an entirely different case, and a total red herring in an Irish context Foynes is one matter, that might come about on the back of a new flow of or

no-one spends €25 to €30 million on a diversionary route (not passed for passenger trains) in case there is an incident on the existing line. Rather they would postpone the traffic or take it by road. I'm struggling to see what traffic a freight hub at Claremorris would attract that isn't already o

Two lane road = dual carriageway?

you're driving 2 km in the wrong lane and people behind you are losing patience and trying to get you to move over and you don't think you are causing a problem?

Two lane road = dual carriageway?
