Default [22-9-2006] Widespread Delays, Dublin Suburban Area

Extensive delays of up to 15 minutes as a result of the weather conditions last night

No notice on IE site, note Northern Ireland having similar problems but the translink site has extensive information

The display in Connolly said the delay was due to "poor rail conditions".. made me laugh...

In 22 years of DART travel I've experienced only one wheel side event on braking due to the leaves, train still stopped perfectly. The only time I've experienced a stall on acceleration was due to poor driving which almost brought the circuit breakers out

This morning my train made Seapoint Pearse in 1 minute under the timetabled time of 16 minutes, OK it was 5 minutes late but still it made up time

I was stuck between Howth and Connolly for approx. 18 mins. on a Dundalk-Bray service.Not a single announcment re any delays, or any information....I think there was a driver change in Connolly, still no announcements..poor show I thought...
