I won't go into the details of the social welfare travel scheme but its nigh impossible to refuse a pass holder.

Sure you can throw people off later but they must be allowed travel. The pass can only be confiscated if it is clear the person using the pass is not the pass holder or the pass is deemed to be a fake.

The security on the 16:40 and another train Dublin bound has been ongoing for some months, bit surprising it took this long for someone to notice.

Thats astonishing that people's safety could be put at risk and security is required because someone on the social welfare travel scheme is guaranteed free travel.

I travel on the 16:40, 4 days most weeks and have seen security only twice and an inspector a handful of times, when they are on the troublemakers usually aren't.

If people must be allowed travel, why not post a couple of members of an Garda Siochana on the train from time to time. Anyone committing a crime can then be arrested. Or am I missing something ?

Totally agree, I was on the 16:40 train the other day and security were "patrolling" the carriages, I was wondering what exactly can they do? If they catch someone using in the toilets, abusing passengers etc will they call the Gardai and have them arrested at the next station?
