Cancellation of the 18.04 connolly to maynooth monday evening
Due to a technical fault on the train. Passengers were directed to platform four to the 18.00 service to longford. the 18.00 connolly to longford ran as an eight car train calling at all stops

Connolly station activity monday evening
Just to add that the 18.17 service to longford was held up by eight minutes awaiting someone to arrive with a wheelchair ramp and left just before half six. And the 18.37 service to rosslare departed as a four 2900 set from platform 7

Fun and games on platform 4...

A few minutes prior to departure all passengers on the 18.00 Connolly-Longford were told to leave the train as it was "out of service".
Shortly afterwards it re-entered service and passengers were allowed to board.
It departed 15 minutes late and made unscheduled stops at Drumcondra, Broombridge, Ashtown, Castleknock, Coolmine, Clonsilla, Leixlip Confey, Leixlip Louisa Bridge, Kilcock & Enfield.
It also missed its path to cross the up Sligo.

Total delay = 35-40 minutes

26 has been troublesome in the last week, lovely and quiet though if that many engines fall over its either the battery or lack of fuel

Blue light is a light in the cab which is lit only when all the doors are locked, if it doesn't light the train won't move
