IARNROD Eireann may be saving on fuel; however, for some passengers it means standing room only.

The 12.04pm Malahide to Greystones DART was unusually packed with shoppers, parents with buggies, pensioners and shift workers yesterday – all because it was a lot shorter than normal.

While rail operators are to be commended for protecting frequency of services, by cutting back to just two carriages it will mean an uncomfortable trip for those unfortunate enough to board the train further down the line.
