Im looking forward to the new timetable starting tomorrow. The half hourly frequencies all day mon-fri upto 9, up to 7 Saturday upto 7 Sunday and the later Sunday trains up to 11pm. Vast improvement.
One additional point. The last time the 7 and 9 services were introduced on the Sligo line and the 8.08 nonstop was introduced hastily, we had a suggestion that it should stop at clonsilla with a connection for broombridge - coolmine passengers using the docklands train ahead of it. It wasn't implemented then. Anyway the 08.02 ex Connolly to Maynooth will make just 2 stops at broombridge and clonsilla en route. Great news!
