This morning Booterstown (possibly Southbound only) rejoined the list of broken lifts.
How do IE discover these lifts are out of action ? Do people regularly get stuck in them and push the alarm button, or (and I can't see this happening with the way most people carry on) does someone spend ages waiting for the lift, eventually work out it is broken, climb the stairs, go back down, go to the ticket office and report the problem ? Given the attitude of many IE customer facing staff, I know a lot of people wouldn't be bothered reporting it and would just walk out of the station. Maybe the stations that are regularly broken are the ones where the staff take the trouble to check and report, while the ones that never report as broken are the ones where nobody every checks.
