Default [29-3-2007] 19:00 Dublin Cork

As reported elsewhere the 18:40 to Thurles was 10 minutes late leaving

When I boarded the train was not actually powered, just the battery lights where on so seat res was not on when most boarded

19:00 stopped outside Sallins and in Portarlington but we really ate the miles once we overtook the 18:40, 36.4 miles from Portloaise to Thurles including a stop in Ballybrophy took 31 minutes

For reasons unknown the 19:00 also called in Ballybrophy costing a further 4 minutes delay, no explanation of the delay which was 12 minutes by Thurles, there was no catering trolley on 19:00

A rather scary thing I saw was standing in coach F the computer screen had a green light on coach E, green meaning door open, we where doing 50+ mph at time, doors where closed though
