Be interesting to see the affect it as in Merrion gate and other such crossings

the 8200s are unlikely to return now. it would take a hell of a lot of work to get them back in service, and even more work to make them reliable.

That’s going to drive people mad! I had heard somewhere they were talking about some sort of fly over/under there.. NO idea how they would achieve that, however.

They were thinking about but would have had to CPO some of the church car park IIRC so it got binned by NIMBY

After many years of delays, Irish Rail are now changing their timetable ls to incorporate the delays. My usual morning train will now leave five minutes earlier to get in at the same time.

Rebasing to reality has to be done sometimes.

One thing that may have a slight benefit in keeping to time on a more frequent schedule is that drivers shouldn't feel any need to wait for late passengers running down the platform

I'm getting no increase in frequency out of this, just a bigger rush from the crèche to the train station

Most Sligo trains , inbound and outbound, will stop at drumcondra in the new timetable

Exception being the 08.00 and 17.10 services out of Connolly

Not the 8200s, some of the other longer term stored 8100s and 8500s, for example 8103/8303 has recently moved from Inchicore to Fairview in readiness for a return to service having been missing from the network since August 2010.

The usual, smaller trains, safety issues etc.

There was to be a flyover, but that plan is officially dropped due to a huge amount of local objection, and due to the EU Habitats Directive there are protections on the seafront (it is designated a Special Area of Conservation) meaning no other alternatives are available - the gates are staying.

Not yet, just via the journey planner for IC trains.

There's nothing worse than seeing a fellow commuter ambling up to the doors attempting to get on. Yes, we're all waiting here for you sir/madam.

They wanted more money for longer trains...

Unions need to shut up or put up and stop messing with trying to control the railway.
