I'm guessing its due to falling volumes with more traffic going through Dublin and on the IWT?? What's the source of this snippet if you don't mind me asking?? Will IE be announcing it or DFDS??

If it does happen will we see the once weekly wednesday Ballina-NW/Thursday NW-Ballina working, that uses the DFDS set of wagons,being rescheduled. Can't see it really being possible to store the set in Ballina from thursdays to the next wednesday. Maybe the DFDS flats will transfer over to the IWT and the 25% capacity increase over the CPWS will allow fewer trains to operate the same load. All in the name of efficiency:) gotta think LEAN.. any thoughts??

Its so sad to see the demise of rail freight and you only have to look at

the rail freight video made in 1991 to see the drastic loss to the railways

and what used to run and indeed lines as well.
