Default New Enterprise Notice

I was away for a week... de-stressing I arived back and on my first day back the train was delayed due to engine failure and chaos. One wee thing also grabbed by attention. There is a new notice in the Queuing system that states that from 2nd April that delays to the Enterprise may occur of up to 15 minutes due to "security" problems! This is "until further notice" I suppose they had to say something to explain the continuous delays that have occurred in this service since xmas. The last security problem cause much longer that a 15 minute delay and different trains as well!!

Said notice only applied last week after a bomb scare, afterwards some locals decided to burn out a signalling room, as a result the signalling system was not at full capacity resulting in some delays

The 20:45 Dublin Belfast had a bus substitution from Newry onwards that week as well while work was undertaken to repair

More details http://forum.platform11.org/showthread.php?t=2290

Iarnrod Eireann never issued a notice concerning the bus transfer

What goes through these thugs minds?
Are they intentionally trying to cause a train accident or is it just mindless vandalism ?

If it is intentional, how about charge a few people with attempted mass murder?

They (the thugs), could be the first minimum wage slave labourers for the reconstruction of the reunification railway I was on about at another website.
