Hi all,

In Britain the ORR publish yearly figures for each station's usage. Is there an equivalent for Northern / Republic of Ireland's railways? I can't find anything on the NIR site (what a surprise), nor IE; and a Bing search shows nothing useful.

Cheers

Irish Rail only publish the number of passengers who use the rail line such as Dublin-Cork or Dublin-Galway etc. The Belfast line is one of the least used in passenger terms which is no suprise.

I take it you mean the Belfast - Dublin line which, if you do, it's no wonder people don't use it when it's just as fast to drive between the two cities now. Random cancellations due to people of limited intelligence causing line closures doesn't help matters either.

As far as I know, passenger numbers are on the up and up for NIR although it seems they have a good bit of staff cuts planned as part of cost-cutting. It might be worth trawling the NI Assembly website questions section http://www.niassembly.gov.uk/Assembly-Business/Questions/ searching specifically, questions to the Minister for Regional Development. Chances are he's been asked about this.

Not quite what you want, but from earlier this month, passenger journeys broken down by route:

http://aims.niassembly.gov.uk/questions/printquestionsummary.aspx?docid=128691

Some quick crunching in a spreadsheet reveals NIR annual totals for the last five financial years as follows:

2006/7: 7,721,000
2007/8: 8,619,000 (+11.63%)
2008/9: 9,405,000 (+9.12%)
2009/10: 9,253,000 (-1.62%)
20010/11: 9,605,000 (+3.8%)

Hi all,not sure if this is the right place but does anyone have a postal address for NI Railways HR Dept?
I'm a fully qualified driver & am looking to relocate to Northern Ireland for family reasons. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ignore what you said, actually realised what you were saying just before your replied! I can't find it ATM, but if you phone or email NIR they may be able to help :)

Enjoy NI by the way, stunning country.

Maybe suggest contacting the Drivers Standard Manager in Translink? I can contact you off board if you wish to go through him....
