Default Dart Length

3 years ago we were told that Darts were to be reduced in size to cut costs, with 2 carriage Darts being quite a frequent occurrence at certain times of day.

3 years on and we're back to 6 and 8 carriage Darts trundling around in the evenings when 2 or 4 would still suffice.

If it made savings then, then it makes savings now. It must have been someone's job before to reduce the train set size, but clearly it is no ones now.

And you also have the situation like I saw at Monkstown station last week where a 4 carriage city bound Dart pulled in around 8.15am, absolutely jammed.

Essentially the same comment, why does it appear that it's now no-ones responsibility to have appropriate size Dart sets?
