Iarnród Éireann has reminded Sligo-Dublin Intercity and Maynooth-Dublin commuter customers that improvements in the daily schedule will take place from next week.

Just two years after the service increased from three trains each way to five trains each way, one of the fastest growing routes on the network will have eight trains each way daily (Mon-Fri) from 21st January 2008.

Saturday 26th January sees Saturday services increase to seven trains each way daily, and Sunday services will increase to six trains each way daily from Sunday 27th January 2008.

The new weekday schedule includes a new Monday to Friday early bird service departing Sligo at 05.45hrs, and an early evening 16.00hrs service from Dublin to Sligo. Other services will depart on a clockface pattern, from Sligo every two hours from 07.00hrs to 19.00hrs, and from Dublin every two hours from 07.05hrs to 19.05hrs.

No mention of the Longford Commuter changes though?

One of the changes being is that the 17:15hrs Connolly Longford will no longer operate on a Saturday meaning no trains to Kilcock or Enfield between 16:00hrs and 18:17hrs on a Saturday.

Also as a result of this the 17:28hrs Connolly Maynooth will run on Saturdays from next week.

Signs up in Connolly announcing the new timetable. I didn't get a chance to check if the new timetable is actually available.

The December 2007 timetable included the pre- and post-January 20th timetables. I don't know if the amended (January 2008) timetable is available.

Its the New Sligo Earlybird Intercity Service. It will be interesting to see how it works in the busy Morning Peak traffic on the Maynooth line.
