huggy, comcor, thanks. The report in the journal is dated July 2017. Has there been any move on this since? Some IE projects seem to take forever.
I should imagine that the plan is to release the 2600s and 2800s for use in the Dublin area (and Ballina?). At present there should in theory be 36 2600 and 2800 vehicles (18 2-car sets) based in Limerick. This seems an awful lot, given that ICRs also operate to Limerick Junction and Galway for some services. So maybe 13 2700 sets plus a few ICRs should be enough to cover Limerick's needs.
