Default 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
