If you are moving the set anyway, you may as well let passengers use the service.
It's probably over a decade ago now, but there was a time that a set repositioned from Tralee to Cork on a Sunday evening, with no passengers accommodated as it didn't connect to a Cork-Dublin Service. This was then changed to allow passengers. I used it about 4 months ago and it was 40% full leaving Killarney and closer to 70% full leaving Mallow.
I don't like the phrase 'Build it and they will come'. but sometimes the provision of a public transport service can influence how people organise their lives.
