16:30 from Connolly to Wexford has Campile as the destination on the tickers over each door and says it's serving Dalkey, Sandymount, Mosney, Tullamore and Campile - random!

Thumbs up [24-12-2009] 14:35 maynooth pearse

Audio and visual systems not on but well done to the driver who made the manual announcements asking customers to take care when getting off the train due to the icy conditions.

A sign of thinking of the customer for a change !

Angry lack of information

The 15.10 train from dublin to waterford today 06/01/2010 was stoped in kildare for at least 25 minutes before we were given any information at that we were told the delay was due to lack of signal at (blank blank blank....?) and we will give you more information as soon as possible. Then the limerick train floats past us. We were then left sitting for another 40 min before we were told we would be stopped for another 40 minutes. With no tea /coffee all that was left in the shop was kitkat well maybe thats what the driver was having whilst we were stoped ( have a kitkat ..have a break)

Translates into i havent an idea whats going on and have no clue as to long you will be stuck here we will say 40 minutes and hope for the best.

Not a thank you or sorry for the delay.

Points at Cherryville Junction, froze or got clogged with snow.

They should have point heaters in place to prevent this, but they don't

Default 07:50 ex Rosslare garbled announcements

Pretty much since this service was transferred to intercity operation that all manual announcements made are garbled and inintelligible. This seems to happen everyday on this particular service. This wouldn't be a problem if the PIS was on! Why they won't turn on the PIS is beyond me, as back in December when it was turned over to intercity railcars the PIS was working fine. Is it not breaking some rule to run a train without proper audible announcements either automatic or not and without the correct destination showing or in this case any destination showing?

No destination displayed inside or out is a penalty item in the NTA contract on two fronts.

The train must
Display the correct destination front, back and side
Display and announce the next station, all stations to be served and destination inside before arrival and upon departure from every station

8.05 Maynooth train ex Connolly once again this morning showing Ballyhaunis on the front display (like every other morning for the last three weeks). No in-carriage announcements for stations.

Where the equipment is fitted it must be functioning correctly. This is clearly not the case for most journeys

Who defines "functioning correctly"?
If I am sitting in the Westport carriage of the joint running Galway-Westport, and the information scrolling through says "This train is for Galway" is that "functioning correctly"

The 14:35 Arklow to Maynooth had littleisland on the front as it arrived into Lansdowne Road yesterday. Even with 2 drivers they couldn't get it to work properly.

Displayed locations such as Wicklow and Templemore as the next stop.

I would really hate to be a tourist in Ireland as you wouldn't know if you should get on a train or not since it doesn't display the correct final destination.

Where do they even get those destinations from? Are there any trains that have Ballyhaunis or Little Island as their terminus?
