Looking at train performance data, there appears to have been a steady deterioration in punctuality month by month from January to March. Is the new timetable putting such demands on rolling stock that maintenance and reliability are slipping?
Unless I am misreading things, DART punctuality dropped in February but rose back up in March so I’m not sure where you’re getting the basis of your “steady deterioration in punctuality”?

Jan 93.3%
Feb 90.4%
Mar 95.1%

All of which are ahead of 2018.
