Joe the Train Host
We were lucky enough to have Joe as our train host on the 17:30 from Cork to Dublin yesterday. He seems far more active, helpful and obliging than the others, making announcements about what time connecting trains left at (so that people could leave the stations if needed), went through the train several times to get people to take bags and coats off seats, and told standing passengers where there were spare seats so they could go and sit down.
I remember him another time after a GAA match in Thurles when the first train to Dublin had forgotten to stop there, doing more of the same.
Why can't the other train hosts take a page out of Joe's book?

We could start naming and shaming here
That said I've been told not to id the train hosts who smoke at an open first class door while the train is stopped in Thurles
Unhappy with new timetable - let us know
