Default [8-11-2007] Delays all services Connolly side

Delays of 5-15 minutes on services all directions at the moment,

No real reason, however an empty DART went north from Connolly at 18:05 quickly followed by a 22k on test

Default Broken DART

I was on a southbound DART in Connolly at about this time. There was an announcement in Connolly that the next train to platform 6 was going to terminate. The next train was a DART with loads of people on it and it arrived in to the platform with "Out of Service" on the display.

The PA announced that the next train to Malahide was currently in Pearse and the next one to Howth was in Landsdowne Road.

My southbound train from Clontarf Road was announced as being 7 minutes late due to the late arrival/departure from Howth. I just arrived at the platform a minute or two before it did and there was certainly a lot of people waiting for it - more than usual.

Yeh, delays began to northbound DARTs at about 16.30. Leaves on the track, I think.
The peak Gorey service from Maynooth was 20 minutes late, at least.
Bad day all round for delays

Got a DART northbound from Blackrock at 17.40, playform display said delays of up to 10 minutes due to 'poor line conditions'.

But gf was on the DART in front of me and was told it would terminate at Connolly - not sure if it did as she got off before that.

I got a southbound DART from Pearse to Greystones at around 17:50, which pulled into a siding before Grand Canal Dock and set there for around a quarter of an hour. A railcar set, presumably the delayed 17:38 to Gorey (which was next on the CIS after the train I was on) passed us out and we eventually started again. I was in Sandymount just before half six.
