The Rosslare Line signalman is on duty in Greystones until the last DART departs so it is all a red herring.

In the past it could be argued that keeping signal boxes open late cost money but this...

Is the JP law? Or merely a suggestion?

I have seen some very bizarre options in the JP which no sane person would do.

This is the thing. The last few times I have travelled to London, sail/rail has come out way more expensive than a Ryanair flight to Stansted and taking the train from there into the city.

Would extending the car park mean getting rid of the signal box pub?

It is not working that way at all.

My local SWO is a small rural one and does not issue cards. Anyone getting called for a new card has to travel to the designated SWO which is some 25 miles away.

How does a passport show the country of residence? As I said earlier plenty of Irish passport holders are not resident in Ireland and are thus resident elsewhere.

I think your idea is flawed.

Thanks, that wouldn't apply to me as I need to get the 0652 to Heuston in the morning.
