I don't suppose the fact that the line is essentially completely shutdown on April 27 means IE will have all those drivers to fill the holes in the roster elsewhere?

I am delighted that the line is being computerised, We should start to see changes on this line (hopefully) I hope 10-15mins gets slashed from the Gorey to Dublin side of things.

Will the trains travelling south of Gorey travel faster?

While the journey planner has all the bus substitutions from Dublin to Rosslare, it is still showing a rail service between Waterford and Rosslare Europort during the affected period.

I know its an out-of-the way service, but a little attention to detail would not go astray.

I think the new signalling post just outside Gorey will stop the train from going fast from on now..Here's now!!

Yesterday coming back from Dublin after the train reaches is it Lizze's cafe out the old N11 road the train went slow because the signal post around the corner the train driver didnt know if it was going to be green or red/orange and had to slow down how can he see around a corner .. I think this was a stupid place to put a signal post rather than just up near a straight piece of track......

If it has a red light, there will be a preceding signal with a yellow light. If that is yellow, the signal will be red. Hence the need to slow down. Of course, it may have cleared in the meantime. Signal locations are based on braking distances. If there is a sighting issue, a "repeater" is placed before the signal giving a clear/caution indication - the the signals at the western end of the cutting outside Heuston for examples.

Cue locking of thread for being "too technical".

The old signaling didn't meet current standards, the new one does

is there actually red, amber and green on these signals? I know there is on the DART line but between Bray and Greystones its just 2 lights on each signal (I can see the lock coming now...).

Stop stop not getting into a long discussion on signaling technology

The Rosslare line is system is in line with latest standards and best practice using the most advanced proven equipment available

Any chance of an explanation on IE signaling in the members section?
