Default Figures/messing around with timetables

on the week ending the 16th March there were 17 individual passengers on the branch line for the 5.05 am ex-limerick service.

yesterday I counted 7 passengers including myself abord departing Roscrea.

Again, yet again, the train was late, 10 mins, departing Roscrea. We skipped Monesterevin and still arrived late, getting into Heuston at 8.47.

I'll be on it again soon. But those are the figures, and skipping stations to try and get in on time isnt on.

on the way back, four brave souls on the 19.15, which was held up for the 19.20 from cork, which was itself late at 19.25. Spot the problem? That 19.15 isnt, obviously, supposed to link with the cork train. Of course, nobody transferred.

so, an unscheduled and unadvertised conenction? For what reason, surely not political.

anyway, I'll miss the 2700's they are warm if nothing else. Lonely, though.

That delay yesterday managed to make the following Cork, Limerick (via Thurles), Galway and Westport trains late.

Someone really needs to get a grip on it.

sorry to bring this up again but has anyone confirmed what IE are up to on the Saturdays of the closures, i.e. since the 1705 ex Limerick is a bus are they shunting ex Dublin to the Branch to do the 1915 ex Ballyb?

{I only ask on the grounds that it shows once again IE can do all sorts of things when they can be @rsed}

presumably so, in fact its not that big a diversion to run a bus from the 1800 along the route portlaoise/borris-in-ossory/rathdowney/templemore/thurles it will pass ballybrophy station that way.
