Default 17.25 Connolly to Gorey

This train was late again last night. Lately it has been getting to the stage where you are pleasantly surprised if it is actually on time!

From last Thursday to this Thursday it has been late 3 or 4 times in the evening. I am seriously considering whether to stop using this train. It's no joke to rush from work in the evening to the station only to find that you have to stand around waiting for the late train.

I was on the 17.25 last night. On asking why the train was late I was told the train was delayed at Wicklow on its inbound service. The cause was a child had ran away from home the train was searched and the child was taken off the train. It then lost its slot out of Bray.

Morgase, Believe me I know what you mean. I have considered driving but the traffic out of Dublin at that hour. I arrived back in Gorey one evening after leaving Dublin at 19:35 and I left at 17:15. MARK - This one is for you, The current timetable stands at 17:05(DART),17:14(DART),17:25(GOREY),17:29(DART) now the 17:05 arrives in Bray 17:52 thats fine. The 17:14 DART that arrvives at Dun Laoghaire 17:41 and arrives Dalkey 17:49 now the Gorey train arrives Dun Laoghaire at 17:48 now why cant the DART travel between Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey slowly that will give the Gorey time to travel on the wrong track from Dun Laoghaire to Dalkey and cut in the right track and travel to Bray arriving Bray at 18:00. The 17:35 Bray/Longford arrives Dalkey at 17:45 at that stage the Gorey train will be travelling on the wrong track to Dalkey and if the Longford commuter was 17:45 instead of 17:35 and put the DART 17:50 instead of 17:40 then when Longford Commuter stops at Dalkey the Gorey train would have passed and followed by the DART train.. It will save the Gorey train in around 10minutes. It takes from Wicklow to Rathdrum 13mins knock off 1minute and Rathdrum to Arklow knock off 3mins it does not take 18minutes and Arklow to Gorey knock off2mins. Arriving Gorey at 19:05 saving 15mins. Would it work?

I would to see the Rosslare Route times reduced by at least 20/25mins. I think after Bray the Rosslare/Gorey services crawl along to Connolly and vis-a-versa. Is there no way the times from Bray to Connoly could get reduced even 10mins.
