Western Rail Corridor

Recommended Posts

Meanwhile this evening I estimate about 50 odd people got off the 1750 Galway - Limerick at Ennis which was a 2 car set (85 seats). The train still had a healthy load into Limerick. No reason why a Galway to Tuam (or beyond) service couldn't do the same. But to a lot of commentators on the East Coast (I include the Dublin based media and keyboard warriors in that statement) the line only carries a handful of passengers a day.

The trouble is that Tuam is nowhere the size of Ennis, but then Claremorris is nowhere the size of Tuam and it has several trains a day to and from Dublin. Those in charge of developing the western side of Ireland must make, and then re-make, the case for a rail line down that side of the country until those in government sit up, take note and do something about it. The trouble is that Ireland is very similar to the UK in that it takes one hell of a long time to get infrastructure projects off the ground, even road schemes.
