Stopping in the right place
I don't get the DART that often but did on 22 August (the sunny day).
I boarded at Sydney Parade southbound, with the 6-car DART pulling in as I descended the stairs. I was slightly surprised that I had to run (I resented this bit, I'm overweight and had just cycled 6km) down the platform as the train stopped as far down as possible.
Returning later, the DART pulled into Dalkey, stopped and then lurched forward a few meters.
On both occassions it appeared as if the approach was made a lot faster than what I'm used to. Is this common?
