Following the restoration of boat-train links at Rosslare, through ticketing has also now been restored. Joined-up thinking!
Here for example is the National Rail Enquiries page for a Cardiff to Wicklow journey this week. A choice of through fares, and a choice of routes too, as one of these services goes via Holyhead. Bristol to Wexford? London to Enniscorthy? Try it yourself.
It’s all sensible, and it’s all welcome. Now we hope that people will use the new rail-sail-rail links through Fishguard to the whole of southern Ireland. The new connecting times at Rosslare have only been granted for a few months – whether to save face in Dublin or because it’s a genuine trial we don’t know – so let’s see the service used and retained.
