The Sligo line figures are remarkable as pointed out earlier and to think a number of years ago there was serious discussion on closing the line beyond Mullingar showing how short sighted the Dublin oriented thinking can be. The regions need infrastructure like rail for connectivity and flexible alternative transport options for long distance travel. People will use rail if the service is quality and the price is competitive. Incentives like family travel prices at week ends should be considered to use imagination and creative ways to utilise the lines to a maximum - this happens on the continent.
