Had a similar experience this morning on the "new" 06.00 Gorey Connolly train.It departed Gorey 12 minutes late as the 05.44 Arklow Rosslare Harbour train was late.Thanks to all the padding the train was back on time again by Bray.

All was fine untill the train departed Tara St. The train then sat out side Connolly station for nearly 11 minutes before pulling in on a rather crowded platform 5.

Dispite the announcement that the train was out of service a lot of people boarded the train only to be told by staff that this was not the train for Bray.

I finally passed the ticket barriers at 08.13. On the "old" Sligo service I would have done this just before 8am.

Looks like this will now be norm.

Nothing changes then!! Crammed Maynooth and Dundalk trains terminate in Connolly around that time and everyone crams into platform 5 to get the next southound DART!!! Happy memories!

Sounds like a signaling fault shut down p7 so.

The 8:08 is timetabled to go via the Midland line and thus shouldn't be in p6 unless there was something amiss
