A pity, but I've been here before with this service. A few years ago when I moved from UK the guard in Birdhill only had a clattered cash box, usually with little change, for people to pay for...

I hope this won't result in a further erosion of the commuter service. If you can call it such.

New station on the Nenagh branch line (according to Apple iOS 6).

Apple should now run this branch line. Failing that if Virgin looses the West Coast Mainline we could ask Branson.

Upon inspection I would expect this to be an increase of 4 to 5 mph on the current average speed. I will record it with a GPS next week and see if its possible.

On a more serious note: So am I reading that considering a 10min travel time reduction, and an inordinate 15 min connection delay in B'Brophy, that a more sensible departure (e.g. 1620/1720) ex...

Put a spoiler on it....(and maybe if it's faster extra passengers may use it and help weigh it down)

In simple terms:

Departures at 45 mins past the hour = many potential customers will not wait for a departure (they are potentially at home 15 mins before it leaves) therefore service doesn't...

Some individuals I have spoken to recently that drive my route from Killaloe/Ballina / East Clare were not aware that a functional railway station even exists at Birdhill, never mind that a commuter...

Precisely, it changes everything for some. It was great for me as I could bring my bike and cycle to work. A bike which I had just invested 4 figures in as part of the cycle to work scheme. In...

Don't get me wrong. I think any up-service of this line is positive. It disappoints me that I probably now won't be able to use it anymore and the annual ticket that I have spent 1300eur on is...

I am simply gob-smacked. Not only at this, but at Irish rail pseudo-publishing a timetable that apparently comes into effect 14 days time, that is still sort-of-a draft, without NTA approval & zero...

I do not fully understand completely why the commuter services have poor patronage. It's probably multifactorial - unreliable / slow / uncomfortable / no marketing / societal inertia changing...

This timetabling is surely fatal to the commuters that use the service. Nobody that I know that leaves work at 1700 can effectively get the 1705 service. Likewise those that finish at 1600 will not...

I use the commuter service every day. I hold an annual ticket. Are the proposed 1605 and 1705 services the only services heading North in the evening? I just can't understand the logic here. :mad:
