any ideas on what the new Dart times will be like.

I usually get the 1542 from Lansdowne to Connolly to catch the Sligo train to Maynooth.

Will this train move? If so any ideas on how much?

I think its high time for someone in a higher authority to get onto Iarnrod Eireann, This is getting a joke especially for Rosslare line users.

Another two months..

It's shocking really. I give up. The people of Wexford deserve InterCity carriages. Comfort is at an all time low. The way Irish Rail have treated customers on the Rosslare line has been appalling. It's UNBELIEVABLE.

As irritating as the delay is, the Malahide viaduct collapsed causing major disruption to north bound commuters. The introduction of the new timetable seems to be tied in with the date when this situation is rectified. The timetable change for the Rosslare line is obviously co-ordinated with the timetable change of services on other lines. With the current timetable still valid to the rest of the country, could make it quite difficult to introduce the new Rosslare timetable.

However, it does remain possible to change the timetable for trains radiating outwards from Heuston as it deals a completely different sequence of routes. I guess that in this particular case the lack of usage of the Phoenix Park Tunnel is a blessing in disguise. Nevertheless, the delay of timetable changes here is an absolute shambles.

Has anyone noticed that the online timetable doesn't go beyond the end of November?

Thats because the Malahide Viaduct will reopen before then and the new timetable will come into force probably very end November start December.

Its no secret, the online timetable will always have at least 28 days ahead

I thought that I should let y'all know that the current online timetable from the 16 of November has been fully restored as has been promised following the complete repair of the Malahide Viaduct. However, what month would y'all say is when Irish Rail will introduce the new timables?

So we are beyond the 28 day threshold. Currently you are unable to book beyond the 28th november.

So what do you reckon ? Will we see the new timetable in the coming days ?

Thumbs down New Rosslare Line Timetable

Those of us waiting for the new Rosslare timetable are in for a major shock. No increase in services as promised and no major reduction in journey times

No. It is much like the current timetable with the 1640 and 1725 services extended to Wexford. The 2005 ex Enniscorthy now starts from Wexford at 19.30. The 11.35 Gorey is put back till around 12.00 and only operates to Arklow.

Why keep the current times ?

I would have thought with the gorey rosslare line been a low frequency timetable the least they could have done would be make the timetable clockface and make the last one later.

What an anti climax for rosslare passengers !

Whats the latest on the dart and commuter clockface timetables ? Is that happening ?
