You're joking aren't you? CIE/IE is operated for the benefit of management and a social employment scheme for staff - passenger requirements are not part of the equation. Where are the wonderful 22000s??

Default Official 2009/2010 timetable published

I'm happy and relieved that 100% of trains to/from Rosslare and 80% to Wexford will comprise of Intercity stock.

However, the 13.30 and 18.30 to Rosslare will be a big test capacity wise. I've a strong hunch that a 2x3 car 22k may be required.

Just because it says intercity doesn't imply it will be an ICR

How do you suggest that a 2x3 car set will operate given CIE's and the Dept.of Transport's newly developed interest in rail safety? i.e the platform at Rathdrum!!!

Don't blame Kildare Street, its not allowed up north, in the UK or many other countries with high level platforms. There is at least one case in recent enough history involving an over long train at Dalkey where a passenger suffered a head injury

It will be all 3 car sets anyway

I have got to say this is the worst timetable for the Rosslare line I have ever seen, What are we going back to 2005 with a 12pm service going to Arklow.

I am upset that the 10.30 Dublin-Rosslare did not go ahead that service I think would have been a winner. It would have been perfect if Passengers did'nt suit the early 07.32 service.

Services from Gorey to Dublin, The 08.01 11.21 15.30 would have literally made the line.

Looking at the new waste of time timetable, from Gorey the 06.00 06.45 & 08.56(was 08.50) still the same. Next service is 14.01 and 19.04 from 9am to 2pm and 7pm thats a 5hour space between them has IE not learned something by now. With the last train 20.27(Wex-Dub)

Important do Intercity trains terminate all its services to/from Rosslare/Wexford at Connolly and does not go beyond????

Fair enough new trains but at the end of the day Bus Eireann and Wexford Bus have a much better service, with Wexford Bus been the fastest from Gorey. I can honestly see now why the Rosslare line has few passenges.

I too am disappointed especially when i saw no 10:30 to Wexford. The 12:05 service to Arklow is pointless.
Happy with the new trains and the fact most of them terminate at Connolly but thats all.

From looking at the PDF'S it appears the 13.30 and 18.30 to Rosslare will be 22k and possibly the 16.30 to Wexford as well.

No probs with seats on the 13:30 from Connolly, as in 4 to yourself

Delays were no worse than normal

The new timetable is in effect. Some Rosslare line services are 22K-operated; some are not.

It may have been posted already but I noticed that in the new timetable from November 29th, the 16.53 from Maynooth to Rosslare via Connolly arrives in Drumcondra 6 minutes later than the same scheduled service ante November 29th.

That Maynooth train now terminates at Pearse, a separate train operates the 18:30 to Rosslare

How many people get on/off at Rathdrum anyway? How about skipping it for certain services?

When you say commuter services are 28/29k I assume you mean the 12.05 to arklow and the 17.30 to wexford only. The 16.30 is InterCity right?
