dreadfully slow in the commuter sections - the 1725 (1730 in the new tt) now takes 57 minutes to get to Greystones with one fewer stop than before (no Lansdowne Rd) - this is actually slower than the dart (which takes 55), how can this be?

Hopefully the compensation will be a much improved DART timetable, but I won't be getting my hopes up.

As has been said before, nothing is finalised. I am hazarding a guess that this was a draft version but we'll find out. I have a feeling there will be changes. From what I have heard Maynooth line is still at draft stage, suggested changes are at consultation stage etc. (sorry haven't heard what the suggested changes are- but all the talk is of clockface Northern and Maynooth in line with DARTs, possibly top of the hour for one and either quarter past or the bottom of the hour for the other)

Nothing is set in stone, I certainly wouldn't be making any change of plans based on what has come out so far.

I think the compensation would be that the timetable so easy to remember that you wouldn't need to carry one around! and the gaps would be plugged. Fingers crossed!

I think there might be some changes too Thomas hopefully reflecting the issues we've highlighted.

How about scrap the 12.05 from Connolly and replace it with a 19.05 to Wexford

I think the plan of this is to run the 12.05 back from Arklow to Maynooth (the only one according to that timetable) that service is very busy, By the looks of things it wont be going back that way! (towards Gorey/Arklow)

I'm curious....

All this talk was of 17.10ish, 18.10ish, 19.10ish. If the new timetable is true the last mon-sat train is actually leaving earlier (not much though about 7 or 8 minutes) what changed all this?

All speculaton though! (i hope!)

I dont know ThomasJ I think the timetable which I uploaded may be the real one. I haven't heard anything that it will be changed but I was told that they are still at the planning changes.

Maybe every user on the line should write to IE giving their thoughts on what time the last time to Rosslare should leave at before it does get to late...

It may not be that easy. A train may be available at 1205, but not at 1905.

I presume that the new timetables for the maynooth and kildare will only be for a few months given the opening of the pace line and the completion of the four tracking on the line ex heuston

have heard rumours that the commuter services timetable, maybe the whole irish rail timetable that was meant to begin september 27th 2009 maybe postphoned/deferred as a result of the ongoing situation at malahide.

Even before Malahide it has looking shaky. They will probably hold off till the bridge is fixed which would bring us to the WRC opening as well

I thought it was only the Rosslare line set for a timetable change on Sept 27th.

No reason why it should be deferred.

I think personally IE should introduce the new 27th for the Rosslare line they can always change it 3months down the line when the Malahide viaduct gets repaired..

Rosslare Customers can not take much more.

Absolutlely Keith.

Ideally there should be no link whatsoever with the Rosslare and Northern commuter lines anyway.

Na the whole dublin rail network was expected to be restructured in line with clockface connolly side timetables. Its possible they might go ahead with intercity and the DART timetables heck they might even introduce the timetables of those connolly commuter not affected but i doubt it. There are murmurings that some new timetables have yet to be finalised but wait and see. The 28 days To the new timetable is around the corner and upon us we should know an answer by next week at the latest.
