The service on the Cobh line has improved significantly in recent years. It is good to see numbers growing again after a significant dip from the 2007 peak.
Dont forget that trains such as the 05.30 and 06.30 from Cork to Cobh are effectively empty and just locating to return as te 06.00 and 07.00 to Cork.
Likewise the late evening services while busy to Cobh have only a handful of passengers returning back
