Jeez, not usually, no.
Not as a rule (when not at work).
With a slight propensity for easy cynicism, I’ll grant you that much, but not bitter.
It’s just last December’s increase of 29% (in one swift go) to my weekly ticket… I still haven’t managed to swallow that one.
I know that a lot of people would pay a premium to travel in retro-chic period carriages (genuine equipment from the early 80s in some cases). They are called vintage railway enthusiasts. All I want is to go from A to B without wondering if I wouldn’t be better off in the car.
And a seat from time to time would be a nice touch too.
Let the good times roll. Up your swiss, Iarnrod Eireann.
