What the hell is wrong with these guys? All of these trains are either less than 10 years old or refurbished over the last five years.
We seem to be experiencing disruption of this nature on a weekly basis.
Nobody seems to give a damn about maintenance, testing or any level of systematic quality. The system has insufficient network capability to route around train failures so everything collapses at the slightest sign of trouble.
Minor irritants like tripping power sockets or incorrectly programmed automated announcements persist for months (or sometimes years). The 29Ks to Longford have been incorrectly announcing Longford at Edgeworthstown since they entered service yet nobody cares enough to do anything about it.
