A DART has come off the tracks between Greystones and Bray yesterday evening. Irish Rail has confirmed that rock fall along the Bray Head area of the track caused the train to derail.
It is understood that a number of large rocks had fallen on to the tracks below. Thankfully, none of the 33 passengers on board the 11.10pm Dart from Greystones to Connolly Station were injured in the incident.
An Irish Rail spokesperson has said that we are in the process of getting another train out to the area where the passengers have been taken off the train.
The spokesperson went on to say:“Where they are situated at the moment it would mean the passengers would have to walk a mile or so in the dark, we are working on getting another train to the passengers shortly“.
They added that for all of this morning’s services, Dublin Bus will accept rail tickets for customers travelling to/from Greystones. Bus transfers will also be arranged for Rosslare/Dublin Intercity and Wexford/Wicklow/Dublin commuter services.
Iarnród Éireann said they apologise for the inconvenience caused.
