Today marks the 175th anniversary of the opening of the worlds first commuter railway between Dún Laoghaire and Westland Row
Its important to note that 175 years ago, they had everything we have now, they had annual and monthly tickets and they had a clockface timetable and journey times where better than the best Irish Rail in many case. They even had integrated tickets for all kinds of strange things
And they managed to run at 15 minute intervals on Sundays, yes the service was more frequent in the 1800's than it is now!
Hmm, really goes to show how useless Irish Rail are.
Unhappy with new timetable - let us know
