Since the 22K were introduced on the Gorey-Connolly run there has been numerous problems with the service. Failures have led to delays on the 16.40 service and the 06.00 ex Gorey has ended up cancelled on two occasions as the new train sat broke down in the siding in Gorey. Time keeping in wet weather is poor and in hot weather the new trains seem to be overheating.
29000 trains are regularly substituting for the new 22K. I was delighted when the new trains entered service on the line but the delays, tehnical problems and failures I like many of my fellow commuters wish the 29000 take over operating the Gorey trains again.
