Moanday Morning… trains

Does your train service drive you as crazy as mine?

The Dublin Area Rapid Transport is one of the biggest misnomers out there.

The trains are cramped and uncomfortable… and whoever thought of buying rolling stock from a country in Japan where the people are so much smaller.

There are no toilets on board nor on most of the stations despite the fact that you could find yourself on a journey from Greystones to Malahide of an hour and a half.

And Yes, I understand that maintenance needs to be done as it was at the weekend at Pearse Station but I see little forward notice of work that is being done unless you go on the site.

And so Bandanaman is left having to share a taxi home from Dublin to Greystones after my day at The Open and with a driver who had to be told the way.

And every time I am left disappointed with my DART I think of how much better the Swiss do it.

I mean if the DART struggles to get trains on time through the Greystones-Bray tunnel then how would it deal with going up the Alps on the highest railway journey in Europe.

Lets dance! I’ve waltzed with Judy Murray, partied with Brian Lara, manned the barricades with Civil Rights leader Myrlie Evers and even unmasked The Donald as a mariachi fan. Join me (and my bandana) on a madcap tour of the world with the people who make it all possible, our wonderful travel providers.
