If I'm not mistaken, the suspension of most of the modern stock can track the weight the train is carrying along its journey, so it shouldn't be very hard to estimate how many passengers (or at least how many kgs of passenger) are on board at any time.

Processing that data and correlating with train location data would give the fancy named department plenty to do, and would provide much more useful data than a one day census.

Or they could just use the passenger counters on some if not all the fleet.....or the old fashioned way like the Cork hosts walk through the train after all stops counting the number of passengers.

I don't for a second buy that there was not a single change over the same morning last year.
