I find the locked gate issue to be a bit of a red herring. People only go through locked gates as a last resort. In this case it appears to be a train thatís due to depart in eight minutes, a locked...

29000 on Westport line?

Was passed yesterday afternoon by what looked like a 29000 just north of Athlone. Anyone know if these are now being used on the Manulla shuttle, or god forbid, to Westport?
