Hell is at a station — 3 Comments

  1. You can add Limerick Junction to the list of stations where you need to check your itinerary.

    Yesterday, we intended to get the 16:45 from Limerick connecting at Limerick Junction and onward to Cork. The kiddie Christmas party at Thomond finished earlier than we thought so we arrived at Limerick railway station at about 15:30 and it was showing the commuter train leaving at 15:45 for both Cork and Dublin.

    There was a Dublin bound train there to meet us but the Cork train was an hour away.

    I had a seven year old for company and a gentleman whose daughter missed the Limerick train.

    There cannot be too many worse places to spend an hour on your own…..

  2. I remember waiting in a train at Limerick Junction for an inordinate amount of time in the early 80s. We finally moved off, progressed a few yards, and stopped again only for there to be another long wait – a strange place!
