A train failed at 16.40 ahead of your 17.25 service between Sallins and Newbridge. This subsequently lead to a 'traffic jam' with trains behind it awaiting clearance to proceed from our staff who had to set up a special safety measure to allow trains go around the failed train on the opposite track. This track had to be setup in a certain way to allow trains coming into and leaving Dublin to operate safely.
