Notes :
(1) To cross train A609 (12.55 Rosslare Europort to Dublin Connolly). Timing sheet was based on move to Loop & back being ECS, but permission was granted at Wexford for it to be a loaded move.
(2) Kevin Driscoll comments: The timings below are as given out on the day, not as sent with tickets. The original version had the long break at Waterford mid-afternoon instead of Wexford at lunchtime. We would have crossed A609 at Rosslare Strand. The tour was a fringe activity to the Dalriada International Railtour on Sat/Sun/Mon (steam), but this day was sold out well in advance. This may have been helped by the announced intention to close the Rosslare to Waterford line.
