Default Signal failure North of Connolly @ 17.30 14.11.07

Not sure of the details...certainly the 16.50 Bray to Drogheda was caught up in it. After 10 minutes sitting north of Connolly, rang Connolly information. Was asked 'Has the driver not advised you, there was a signal failure, but you'll be on your way soon'. I advised no information. He said he'd ring CTC, and ask them to ask the driver to make an announcement. Needless to say, no announcement.
Seemed to be on 1/2 power to Donabate. Not sure what was going on.
Just usual frustrations around the driver not bothering to let passengers know what was happening
I sometimes wonder is there some sort of industrial relations issue with the drivers refusing to tell passengers what is happening. It is certainly very very frustrating.

The 15:42 Pearse-Drogheda was delayed to around 16:50; not sure if this had anything to do with it.
