Leaving aside problems actually getting the €9.99 fare for the moment, has anyone else noticed in Irish Rail's current TV advert that the last announcement is for 'the 9.99 train to Dublin is leaving from platform 6'. Which station outside of Dublin has a platform 6?

 

Isn't this all meant to be an impossibility?

Waterford?

 

Main platform 3-4 Bay platforms 5 & 6. Old platforms retained after Platforms 1 & 2 closed and converted to a car park

Almost spot on John. Waterford is indeed the only place that could possibly have a Platform 6, except that the former #6 is no longer in public use and it has been de-numbered an can't be used by passenger trains in service. The sad truth is that there is of course no Irish station outside Dublin which has a Platform 6 and that those in Irish Rail' Advertising / Commercial Department do not seem know this. Maybe their next advert will feature trains departing from Platform 9 in Heuston (or even Platform 9¾)!
