Nope despite Irish Rail's management believing I live somewhere inside Inchicore works I most certainly do not not

I understand a second choice featured combinations of blue and grey

Blue and grey would actually be a good combo

Picture of 29017 in the new livery.

Seen also as part of an 8 car set (in both liveries?)

Which button does what?

Quite a difference

Incidentally the Mk3 coach has had a number of different trial liveries applied
I know it's a long time ago but excellent work on encouraging IR to have to those changes implemented Mark. Unbelievable how the manufacturer had the incorrect EU spec for the door colour. Also the original door open button colours were totally nonsensical. You'd think there'd be a human factors team working on stuff like that at a major train manufacturer..

Just passed the set in the new colours, doesn't look half bad. Unfortunately I was on a train passing it in Tara Street at the time so couldn't get a photo. It is currently on the 17:37 Pearse to Maynooth (rear half of the train)

I took a few pictures of the unit as part of an eight coach set as it passed through Killiney. I like it so far. Reminds me of the MK3s, especially the roof.
