There is still MarkIVs parked up doing nothing yet there are still scenes like when capacity is cut (unconfirmed) most likely due to a failure but still not exactly acceptable.
The only good thing is the ICR on Belfast runs was very short lived and they had to stop them and hopefully for good. Little surprised they were as considerate to customers on routes they were purchased for.
There arenít any Mk 4 sets in storage. They are all in use on rotation.
As I understand it the maintenance requirements were too tight previously so hence less sets are now in daily use.
ICR covers the first round trip to Belfast during the leaf fall season due to the locomotives suffering severe low rail adhesion north of Dundalk.
