yes it is disappointing. I was due to take the 1650 yesterday but fortunately managed to take a very busy 1520 DD set. I noticed the 3 car NIR set leaving Dundalk so breathed a sigh of relief that I...

Mark: which train service is the refurbished Enterprise set operating. Is it 0800, 1405 ex Belfast and 1100 and 1650 ex Dublin? The timetables have not been changed. Many thanks.

It was hard to see as all the passengers were corralled on the platform while the train sets were connected and the doors were tested. (I was at the very front to board the "A" carriage) I have to...

1035 ex Belfast 31/10

Unusual movement today: the 1900 ex Dublin was trapped in Belfast last night due to trouble in Lurgan (it was ever thus) last night. The 0735 ex Dublin(an additional 22000 set) was attached to the...

Ah, it felt like nine as my seat was in coach G! I must have miscounted as the train set appeared impressively long!

Much though we regret change in these areas, rail catering in these islands is a shadow of what it was twenty years ago. I do not think this is necessarily IE's fault but reflective of wider changes....

Mark: that's not my experience with the Enterprise and I use it every second week. We know the limitations but for my money it is consistently more reliable than any other IE service.
