Default any thoughts on the new draft timetable?

So does anyone here (maynooth/m3 line users?) have any thoughts on the new draft timetale for 2011?

Main points:

Maynooth services-

Monday to Friday outbound:

A few minor changes to current Dublin-Maynooth services between 5am-9am a few minutes either side. nothing major

after 9am though services to maynooth will revert to hourly starting with the 9:30 pearse Maynooth and departing at approx :40 hourly up until the 14:38 departure

after that it reverts to the current peak services starting with the 15:10 ex pearse with a few minor changes to curremt departure times nothing major up until 19:00, after that the late departures from pearse to maynooth are put back by approx 10 minutes with the 21:55 pushed back to 22:12. The last service remains the 23:10 ex pearse.

Saturday outbound:

Services to maynooth operate hourly at approx :40 starting with the 07:45 pearse maynooth up until 19:40 at which stage will revert to the current late departures (the 20:08, 21:10, 22:12 and 23:10 departures from pearse) The majority of services will depart pearse with the exception being the 15:44 which will start in connolly at that time.

Sunday outbound:

will depart pearse hourly at approx :40 (exception being the 10:30) starting with the 08:40 right up to the last train at 20:45.

Few changes to Morning peak services, a couple of minutes either side nothing major up until the 09:41 departure.

After that Maynooth line services depart hourly from pearse at :40 up until the 15:40 departure.

After that its a general frequency of 30-40 minutes up until the 21:05 after which there are the 22:05 and 23:10 departures

Also the 17:00 Maynooth Wexford will now additionally stop at clonsilla departing there at 17;13

Saturday inbound:

Off-peak services to/from Maynooth soon only hourly? Methinks I'll be getting to know Dublin Bus (and my car) a little better.

Off peak currently is a complex mess of hourly and some extra trains, but is generally only hourly

Proposed timetable is hourly Maynooth Connolly, hourly M3 Connolly with all stops served

So in reality Coolmine for example now has a train every 30 minutes off peak which is a significant improvement.

The new timetable is really good for passengers clonsilla and beyond. Okay clonsilla had a huge number of departures but they were bunched together and most going to docklands and non-stop. The new timetable is a massive improvement now that they are spread out.

Just to clarify, most (95%) of maynooth trains will operate to and from pearse with most m3 parkway trains (peak hour m3 trains will still run to docklands) to connolly
