How long will Tuam-Galway take?

I was told an hour which seemed a bit long to me at first as there are no level crossings between Tuam and Athenry, but apparently a passing loop will be required at Ballygulin to allow trains to pass each other and this will slow it down. It will also have to wait to make connections with Dublin-Galway trains. Main line trains will have priority over WRC at Athenry which means the WRC will also be a stop-start railway.

In other words driving or taking the bus will be faster, cheaper and unlike the sacred WRC they actually serve the main industrial estates in Galway.

Still the 6 or 7 grannies on free travel passes will love it.
