Default [4-2-2007] Dalkey Greystones Closed

Depending on who you listen to its either a

Train failure at Killiney
OR
Overhead wires

Of course no reason why Bray Greystones can't run

DART suspended Dalkey to Greystones by Corporate Communications


4th February 2007 - 16.30hrs

Due to an overhead power fault at Killiney, DART services are currently suspended between Dalkey and Greystones.

Rail tickets can be used on Dublin Bus services.

Iarnród Éireann apologises for the inconvenience caused. We are working to rectify the fault.

Iarnród Éireann apologises for the inconvenience caused. There is significant damage to overhead lines, and disruption is expected to continue for the remainder of the evening.
I was on the 1750 Rosslare train (got on at Wicklow at quarter to eight) which was slightly delayed as a result (and we stopped at DART stations between Bray and Dún Laoghaire, where normally it wouldn't). The story given to us was overhead wires (although the delays were slight and it was explained properly at all times). It seemed as if DARTs were running (but delayed) in both directions by then.

So when you need it most you really shouldn't rely on the real time information.

Some choice examples from last night

So trains still running to Greystones?
