Might I suggest they drop 'DART' off the timetable and replace it with 'DOIRT' for 'Dublin Often Infrequent and Risible Transport'. At least it would then match the D4 pronounciation of that service.

Sorry to jump on your thread Mark. Service will resume as normal after this post.

Is this from all references Mark?

Is the Arrow just on the Kildare line now? Are they being painted over (commuter livery?)

Hmm...

I think it was clear that ARROW was a commuter service. It looked ridiculous on intercity routes, as it should do!

Railcar's far too vague and fluffy.

Maybe they should consider renaming the timetable as " The Irish Joke Book"
