Angry What on Earth is going in Tralee station?

Saw this thread on Boards recently.

http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2055984825

It seems that, in its infinite wisdom, Irish Rail tore up the tracks in the Tralee station shed. Really, I'm lost for words. I would have imagined a straight track terminating in a shelter was a major asset, both in terms of having a sheltered (and thus less expsosed to the elements) storage place for stabled trains, as well as the obviosuly more pleasant place for passengers to get on/off. Seems I was wrong. At least according to the crowd in Ameins St.

Someone else pointed out something I had missed, the track under the shed roof was straight, while the platform further out is curved. This increases the gap between the train floor and platform (another pet peeve of mine) and is not allowed in new builds for accessibility reasons.

It looks like a small version of Rosslare "Harbour" all over again.

What gives?
