Default 4 coach 22k's

Is it true that Rosslare services will become 4 coaches in the near future?

Can't see all services being 4 car trains but possibly a one set allocated to the route. Unless all the current evening services are heavily loaded after Bray/Graystones I can't see it happening.

Yeah, there's certainly a case for the 17:36 ex Connolly and the 05:35 and 07:20 ex Rosslare to be a 4 car 22k.

Probably first sight of a 4 car on the Rosslare line

09:40 out/12:55 back today

As the fleet conversion is still ongoing we won't know for some time what the final plan will be

Would expect 17:36 + 18:36 to be 4 as well as the 13:36 as Fri/Sat

4 car on the 1925 Docklands M3 service, which implies it will be running the evening shuttle too. Probably overkill.

The 1345 Connolly-Rosslare on Sundays is supposed to be an ICR (and the return 1740 ex Rosslare). However on at least two Sundays during the past 4 or 5 weeks it has been a 29k.

Is there any valid reason for this? Now that there are 4-car ICR sets, the old excuse of the 29k having greater capacity is a bit thin.

My opinion is that they put whatever is most convenient for the operator on the roster: the travelling public are given very little consideration.
