The plans for 300 hybrids and in particular the 40 odd ICR cars have been floating about for a long time. They sound to me more like notions than actual plans. Given how long the saga of the 26x 2700 units has been going on, I wouldn't be holding my breath for things to get any better soon.

Anyway, given Irish Rail's habit of parking up relatively fresh rolling stock that they've taken a dislike to because they've got shinier things to play with now, who's to say that spending the guts of a billion euro on new rolling stock would help matters much?
