Default [2-8-2008] Special Westport Dublin

Got to love this, given there is no access to Manulla Junction to the public what use is a stop there? There is no connecting train from Ballina

Quote:
Iarnród Éireann advises customers that a special train from Westport will operate for the Mayo-V-Tyrone match in Croke Park on Saturday 2nd August 2008.

The train will depart from Westport at 08.50hrs serving Castlebar (9.00hrs), Claremorris (09.25hrs), Ballyhaunis (09.40hrs), Castlerea (09.55), Roscommon (10.15hrs) and Athlone (11.05hrs) arrivning in Heuston, Dublin at 12.28hrs.

A special return train will depart Heuston Station at 19.05hrs.

Tickets are available here or at your local station.

Customers are advised to book early to avoid disappointment as tickets are limited.

One would wonder did they just forget to put in the ballina connection and with a little hint (visit a website or two! ) will they fix that!

The Ballina shuttle train is idle and could make the connection

Is it just me or is there a difference between the notice times and the actual times in the timetable?

I suspect the timetable is wrong - unless the train proposes to arrive at 09.27.01 and depart before 09.27.59 at Claremorris for instance.

Default I suspect a case of preparing for ...

"Whaddya mean 3 bus loads of us can't arrive 32 seconds before the train is due to depart?"
