I believe it is because of overnight route works between Greystones and Arklow. The train is sent down to Rosslare and overnights there, instead of overnighting in Connolly, running empty to Arklow at 04something, and running a service from Arklow to Rosslare at 05something, which service has also been cancelled for some time.

There seems to be a few too many overnight works on the DART line? any reason for this? or is the overnight DART works just an excuse?

This has been going on for the best part of 3weeks I think. Last week I traveled on the 20.05 which was meant to be a train but then a bus transfer didnt get to Dublin until 11.05pm from 8.30 that evening.

Traveling by bus to Gorey until I see new trains and the new timetable... lest that way I can leave Gorey late with the improved bus service.

Again the 19.23 Gorey to Dublin is canceled and the 20.05 Enniscorthy is a transfer by bus to Bray & DART to Dublin.

What exactly are IE doing to Connolly/Bray overnight works?

I need to know at this stage........

Glad to see both 19.23 & 20.05 Services are back to normal.

Last nights 19.23 service left Gorey @19.35 due to technical faults which were, Closing of doors without the 3 beep sounds, Lights go off, Toilet sound says for privacy lock doors, Inside interior door did not work Open/Close, Onboard display half the writing working (i.e) Connolly Station -> Conno

If this persists it will look bad for the new trains on the Gorey line.

Service was 2800 class this evening.

A regular thing I have noticed on the 22K is the internal doors always seem to be broken. The heating/Air-con system seems to be failing regularly.

The services seem to be substituted regularly by 29000 and now the 2800 seem to be replacing them.

Its bad enough that the 2800 class are on 9/10 Rosslare/Gorey services you think Irish Rail would make sure to have one service a day to Gorey to be the new 22k trains.

The issue about the infernal doors not working believe me its going to be a problem.

Wobbles, I think you should start a thread on the 06.00 Gorey/Connolly, I noticed you mentioned this on another thread. See how many faults can go wrong with this particular service and the ex 16.40 Dublin/Gorey, This is after all a new train.

I dont agree. If it was the same train I would say yes but I have noted problems on several 22K. These 22K also operate to Sligo and there are problems on that route too. I think there was a big failure on that route earlier in the week.

This morning the 0600 departed Gorey at 0614. I counted 3 internal doors broken. The train had no heating and was very cold. The Auto PA was not working. I was hoping the 28 class would be on the 0600 train they are a better train than the 22.

To be honest my opinion based on travelling on these 22ks a couple of time is nothing major. Your journey does not make much difference but one thing that does irritate me is not enough leg room!

They (the 22ks) should not be used on any commuter services that would have people standing. The train is not built for it.

I hope the ones being built for commuter services will take this into account!

To be honest its the train drivers who make the journey in the way of turning on the onboard PA, Making sure the infernal passage way doors are working, Toilets are clean they are after all in control of driving the train. They dont just drive the train they also should be in charge of litter after each journey like it says in the passenger charter..

Its the train drivers that make the journey more of an experience.

The 0600 Gorey-Connolly 13/7/09 delayed 10 min at Blackrock. Not sure of the problem but the driver was looking under each coach on the train. Also 3 internal doors and 1 toilet out of order

3 Internal doors, Thats crazy. If a passenger gets on say the middle coach of the 22k train and one of the toilets is not working and if the infernal door does not work to the other door then the passenger would have to get off at the next station and use it if they really need to. CRAZY for a new train.

No KSW they were all in the open position. The 22K are a joke for a new train. I hope IE get them sorted before the go to Rosslare but I doubt it.
