Its meant to be "DART journeys always return timetables and Dublin-Cork will display reservations automatically."

Browser friendly image attached.

They still allow way too much time Connolly-Heuston.

Both the intercity and suburban real-time webpages are returning the timetable not the real times

And here was me rushing to the station thinking my train was ontime for the first time in weeks, turned out to be 4 minutes late as always

And the realtime page http://www.irishrail.ie/realtime is gone, so no luck for iPhone owners looking for the next train

Real time suburban and intercity is gone again

The platform displays died yesterday, came back and died again

As of now, the realtime displays for Heuston, Cork, etc seem to be OK, (i.e. loads of late trains) but for Connolly all trains are shown as exactly on time. Not a single deviation from the timetable. Worthy of North Korea.

The suburban ones are showing no trains at all

The one in Heuston doesn't work anyway, it takes a pot guess at Adamstown as to the arrival in to Heuston. That would be fine but for the regular stops at Inchicore to pick up staff

I notice that when I go to the Irish Rail website I get three separate adverts for Hertz Car Hire surrounding the home page.

Nice of them to let me know what the alternatives to the train service are!

Yet another change to the interface. Little green map of ireland icon in each station picker box brings up the rubbish network map, you can click your station there to select it. Though I can't see why anyone would bother, especially given thos awful maps.

Realtime info though is now much improved (shock, it galls me to give credit for anything), much better interface.

Biggest shock though is that there's now only one combined real time system - which seems to work for all stations nationwide!

[edit]
RSS feeds of realtime data, google map integration with real time location of trains? They're obviously finally outsourced the development
