2600s also operate Cork-Cobh/Midleton/Mallow

I think 2 x 2-car sets for Midleton, 1 x 2-car set + 1 x 4-car set for Cobh to operate peak schedule. I'm not sure how it works for Mallow. There seems...

It's strange that the article refers to putting them on tracks around Limerick.

Even allowing for the Limerick Junction shuttle, Nenagh branch, Waterford and WRC services, Limerick isn't going to...

The problem there is that the Athenry-Tuam motorway has completely blown Tuam's score to pieces. Where it had 100 for lack of road competition, that is now a 0. It's score is now a rather mid-table...

For a lot of us, the concern is how meaningful the figures are.

The number includes passengers from Ennis to Limerick (always healthy enough) and Athenry to Galway (probably benefitting from...

What about letting them run on Sunday on Waterford-Limerick Junction.

The line should be fit for it and there would be no interfering with regular traffic.

Although Belfast is a bigger city, there are a few drags on performance compared to Cork, largely based on the change in jurisdiction. Plenty of Cork-based civil servants have to travel to meetings...

As I understand it the way journeys are categorized can flatter one line over another. For example a Dublin-Thurles journey will be automatically counted and a Dublin-Cork line journey, even if the...

I noticed that last time I was on the train to Dublin.

At 10:18 it told us the doors were about to close.

All the way up, it told us it was the 10:20 train.

It was the 10:25 train.

It's very...

I presume they are planning to cut and cover in Swords. The route there certainly seems designed to keep costs down rather than be of use to commuters or businesses in the town.

The main use would seem to be if we are to have a very slow electrification program.

There's no point buying electrical until the power lines are in place.

There's no point having diesel after the...

Is there any possibility of electrification for Dublin-Cork/Limerick or Dublin-Belfast?

Timing electrification to coincide with the end of life of the 201s would make sense.

The beet went via Limerick Junction. I believe Mallow-Dungarvan closed in 1967, when beet from the South-East would have gone to Carlow (or maybe even another site back then).

Anyway, the status of...

If it had gone Cork-Waterford-Rosslare, a Cork-Waterford section would probably still be hanging on, in the same way that Limerick Junction-Waterford is. Unfortunately, as Youghal...
