On the train from Galway to Dublin, the train stopped for no apparent reason just passed Athlone. After five minutes the driver came on the speaker and said we're just waiting for the 18.15 from Heuston to Galway to pass us. (There's only one track). Five minutes later he repeated this explanation. Five minutes later again he came back on the speaker and said "If the driver of the 18.15 train from Heuston to Galway is on this train can he please go to the guard's van". Cue very perplexed faces on all the passengers.
