can you specify that? does it mean the morning service will still run all the way to rosslare with a maximum 6 car set?
Everything is a rumour! reportedly! never say something will happen until you know it will happen [as people who expected the 22k on the 16:40 connolly gorey on the first day it was to start]

Don't know what way it will be setup is the simple answer, what I have heard is that there is expected to be a commuter service ESE to Maynooth [6-coach 28k] in the afternoon and back, presumedly this will be 18:00hrs as the 17:00hrs [expected to be 6-coach 28k from what i've heard] will be to early and the 19:00hrs will probably be 22k operated. I haven't a clue what way it will affect morning services

Lets just say I know a friend who knows a friend who knows a freinds cousin nothings set in stone though and quiet often we tend to know more than they do they often joke! Only the powers to be will know for definate. the timetable will hopefully give us a definate.

Really? even thinking myself, would have thought that the 17:00hrs would have been two busy to be a three coach 22k?

to anybody out there who was boarding the 6.58am from Rush/Lusk this morning or boarding that train at any other station - Let me know if the train was short again

I intended to use it but then could not be bothered to make my way to the train station with all the rain and the parking fee and the prospect of getting a 4-car set.

This topic "haunts" me for the last 2-3 years. All the e-mails i sent and phone calls I made... I will keep an eye on it myself as soon as the weather improves and I can actually walk to the train station in the mornings, just to save the parking fee that is . I hope after the restart of the service we dont need to keep this thread open any longer. I hope...
