Today's 13.45 ex Connolly is around nineteen minutes down. Apart from waiting to cross the up train at Gorey station after departing Gorey it stopped in the Gorey outskirts, driver walked through and train returned to station. And departed again after a few minutes. Not sure why. Train just passed Ferns

Exactly the same thing happened to me in Enniscorthy in March.

My initial thoughts were that there was something on the line. But this couldn't have been the case. Another passenger said there were a group of passengers who forgot to get off. Interestingly the train clawed back a good number of minutes and was only 12 minutes down on arrival into Europort. The official timings south of Wexford are too slack - Wexford to the Strand is often completed in 12/13 minutes. Padding/ "charter minutes" it seems!

A passenger who forgot to get off was also spoken of when it happened to me. I didn't see anyone get off in Enniscorthy though.
