1835 was 3 carriages again this evening, plenty of bikes and luggage in the hallways.

My guess is that Irish Rail are trying to "encourage" Newbridge commuters onto the 1825 or 1855 train.

In addition to the notice on the machine, I believe that it is also indicated on the payment screen which notes/coins are accepted. It's really not Irish Rail's fault that you failed to notice that.

Extending annual ticket

If I have an annual ticket from, say, Dublin to Kildare. If I want to go from Dublin to Portloaise, do I just need to buy a Kildare-Portloaise ticket or do I need to get one from Dublin.

Thanks.
