Smile Punctuality in Japan

Interesting little article in The Irish Times. One can only look on in envy.

While punctual arrivals of Belfast trains at Connolly are as rare as hen's teeth, early departures are routine - not much chance of an apology though or more importantly addressing the issue.

Cork is often even worse than Connolly for early departures, especially from platform 5, so much so that it would be better to advertise Dublin bound services as leaving at xx.18 !

That's so annoying, especially the early departures.
