Arrow Rosslare Line Time Lenghts To Each Station

How long should it really take to each station on the Rosslare line. Traveling on the 19.23 ex Gorey to Dublin it was the new 22000 class train and it was the fastest journey I have ever been on. Judging the speed to each station I would say that that train could have been in Dublin at 21.00 making it 1hr35mins and not 1hr47+mins here's now -> 19.25 train leaves Gorey, Arrives into Arklow at 19.35(10mins and 1min waiting time)departs at 19.36
  • Arrives into Rathdrum at 19.52(16mins and 3mins waiting time meeting Dublin bound train),
  • Arrives into Wicklow at 20.06(11mins and 2mins waiting time),
  • Arrives into Greystones at 20.20(12mins and 10mins waiting time DART from Bray),
  • Arrives into Bray at 20.42(10mins and 2mins waiting time),
  • Arrives into Dun laoghaire at 20.58(16mins and 1min waiting time),
  • 21.10 Arrives Pearse Station(11mins)
If you knock off the waiting time at Rathdrum and Greystones 13mins then it would make it 1hr35mins
  • Pearse to Dun Laoghaire 10mins
  • Dun laoghaire to Bray 16mins
  • Bray to Gorey 1Hr
  • Gorey to Rosslare 1Hr
Making the journey time 2hr30mins But can this be done I believe it can....
  • I think the old Connolly-Bray should be restored knocking off more time not stopping at Tara St, Pearse Station, Dun Laoghaire.
  • Only Gorey Commuter services both ways both serve these stations not InterCity.
What do users on the Gorey/Rosslare Line think ?

This most likely will happen. First stop will be Bray.

whatever happens you will either end up lagging behind a DART most of the way or you leave huge time gaps on the DART line effecting their passengers, inconviniencing a larger number to a cater for a much smaller number.

The Sligo line is an example of this. There is normally a (at least) 20 minute gap (peak time 4.40 to 5.15 is 35 minute gap- astonishing for peak hour!) between the last maynooth train to leave and the next sligo intercity. This is also considering that the Dublin-Bray stretch is longer than the Dublin-maynooth stretch.

well thats always been the case so nothing new there..
the final evening train to rosslare will probably be the most frustrating although some say it could be circa 19:00 departing connolly so that might alleviate the delay to get to Bray.

Journey time Bray to Gorey rather than the 1hr10min IE currently have was exactly 1hr. WHY DO IE HAVE 10MINS OF PADDING ON THIS SECTION...??

They pad everything, especially between the last two stations.
