Exclamation Dublin Cork services

News just in services between Dublin and Cork may be subject to mass cancellations today and in the future

A number of Mk4 trains have been removed from service due to serious safety concerns. The information we have received somewhat links to other information we posses and also matches with recent info from the RSC. There is a problem with the wheelsets.

Mark G - any update on this? Are any Mark 3 sets available to compensate or are they already committed?

The Mark 3s are scheduled to be scrapped, which is a horrendous idea because they're more or less the best available carriages.
