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.

What is the actual solution here? The height of the line was raised some time ago, but it seems to have had little impact. And while people regularly cast doubt on the Western Rail Corridor, I don't...

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...

Feel like spending it on some passing loops so that InterCities and longer-distance commuter trains can pass Darts?

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...

Mallow to Rosslare

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...

Bray to Wicklow seems the biggest risk, but there hasn't been any talk of closing that line.
