Presumeably the choice is either stop everything or nothing at Lisburn, insert some more padding for trains that don't stop at Lisburn or do not go clockface. Alternatively abandon the vain and unnecessary 10 min off peak DART service.

As it happens I was in Portadown yesterday and NIR were supplementing their regular hourly service to Belfast with express services. From Belfast in the evening between 1600 and1930 there were 9 services to Portadown. From Dublin, yesterday, there were just 4 services to Drogheda during the same period. Five of the Portadown services were expresses compared to two of the Drogheda services. On. Saturdays, from Pirtadown, there is a half hourly service and in addition to the Dublin service there are no less than 16 expresses in either direction. In Drogheda, apart from the Belfast trains, there are no fast services. Still I am sure Irish Rail have it right, stuff the place with slow moving DARTs and have everybody travel at 20 mph - the obvious way to grow business and revenue ?
