Default [11-8-2006] Northern Commuter and Southbound DART delays

Looks like IE are getting the hint that we can provide better travel info or is it because 3 IE managers where either delayed or actually on the trains involved

The 6:35 ex Drogheda is probably the same set that broke down in Pearse on Wednesday evening its in Greystones at this stage

About 10-15 minutes delay on northern line services

Northern Commuter and Southbound DART delays by Corporate Communications


Due to a fault on the 06.35hrs Drogheda to Rosslare service at Skerries, there are significant delays to Northern Commuter services at present.

In addition, there are some delays to southbound DART services due to a technical fault on a DART service at Raheny.

Iarnród Éireann apologises for the inconvenience caused.

I'd say more than 10 - 15 mins,
the 7:00 from Rush and Lusk had not arrived at 7:37 when I left the station and drove in. Guy in the station reckoned it'd be about an hours delay

Default Skerries

This service broke down in Skerries @ 06.53, and was still there 59 minutes later. Then left, pretty full considering most services are light enough this week. Although there were announcements both on the train and on the platform, the noise from the engines meant you could not hear them. You would have to be on the train to hear the announcements.

Its just gets better

The 22:20 Pearse Dundalk was severely delayed only leaving Pearse at 22:35 with a queue of trains behind it, the driver seemed to have trouble with the brakes took 3 attempts to get moving.

Due to the delays earlier it was a 2600 set instead of the rock solid 29000

Live factual info this is the only place
