Default [19-9-2006] Connolly Area

We have reports of a points failure in the Connolly area

It seems to be effecting southbound services a lot more than northbound

As always nothing on the IE site

Default No information

Funny thing was I was listening to 98FM at around 8.15am, and they had a text from a DART commuter delayed Northbound. The presenter also mentioned no information on AA Roadwatch site.
By the time my Drogheda service hit Pearse, it was 10-15 mins late. The PIS only mentioned delays to northbound DARTs which was incorrect.
Drivers made no attempt to tell the passengers what was happening...

I heard same notice but when I checked northbound trains they where on time well running normally right order within 3 minutes of time, thus I ignored it and was proven correct, nothing was up on the station board at 8:20 to indicate a delay

The problem was very definitely southbound

There are no extra trains for the Ryder Cup during the week, simply trains that normally run out of service to Maynooth being used

But they still manage to charge 20 for it... (yes, I know it includes a feeder bus, but that's just DB.. haha)

Such a scam, don't know how they get away with it.
