Default [15-1-2008] Northbound Services Dublin

Signaling fault at Booterstown, everything going north reported as 15-20 minutes delayed as a result

Unsurprisingly nothing on the IE website

On northbound platform at Pearse and it's bedlam!

Dart to Malahide just arrived, and as usual people wouldn't move out of the way to let people on or off.

Wouldn't surprise me if it is a cattle wagon and if it is now going to Longford.

No, I checked with the driver. The display was doing that game from Sesame Street "One of these kids is doing his own thing ...".

Oh, Platform 6 and 7 both had trains for Maynooth at 18:11, I presume one was delayed and the other was the 18:18.

Yea that was it.

Many confused people on the platform. No announcements were made over the platform PA (the auto-announcement for the 18:08 when it was arriving into platform 7 was actually stopped). People running from one train to the other not sure what train was going to go first or just wanting to get on the one with more space!
