Default 18:00 Limerick-Limerick Junction

Its great 22k's are now running on this line but because of the condition of the Ennis-Limerick line this train always arrives late into Colbert. Maybe a 2800 could do the Ennis service and leave that 22k in Colbert so the 18:00 can depart on time. Felt sorry for the Limerick Junction to Waterford passengers on the uncomfortable 2800 xD

But for years wasn't the complaint that people wanted through service from Ennis to Limerick Junction?

The complaint really is part of the WRC. Colbert depends on these trains to arrive at 17:55 and depart at 18:00 for Limerick Junction but as a regular user of this train, it is always late. Up to 10 minutes sometimes and the punctuality has got worse since the introduction of the 22k's. They should have a 2800 doing the Ennis to Limerick service meeting the 22k at Colbert. Must be speed restrictions on that Ennis/Limerick line.

Or they could fix the Ennis line. I hear rumour about a loco ban.
