Default [08-10-08 17.48 northern line possible delays -

an accident on the line at Drogheda station is currently causing delays to the 16.50 Dublin-Belfast Enterprise. Its currently stuck outside Drogheda Station and delays are probably possible for later trains. I understand an ambulance has been called to the scene so as yet no time on the delay.

Enterprise - 1650 Dublin Connolly to Belfast Central 8-Oct 19:31
Due to an emergency incident at Drogheda, the 1650hrs Enterprise service from Dublin Connolly to Belfast Central has been delayed by 90 minutes.
interesting that they call it an earlier incident as based on accounts the 16.50 was the incident! anyway this has affected further enterprise services

Enterprise - 1900 Dublin Connolly to Belfast Central 8-Oct 19:35
Due to a knock on from the earlier incident on the rail line at Drogheda, the 1900hrs Enterprise service from Dublin Connolly to Belfast Central will be a bus substitution betweeen Dublin Connolly and Dundalk.
