Default 8100 PIS Changes (and not for the better)

One of the best thing about the 8100 class is that they are the only units in the fleet that have a working and reliable PIS system that rarely fails, unlike the other sets which rarely work.

The last couple of days I'd seen a number of units go around with unusually blank screens having rarely saw, and wondered what was going on, but having been on 85xx's for the last few days never got to see them up close.

I was on a 8100 this morning and last night and first the positives, next station and destination is now fully in Irish, rather than saying next station and destination in English and having the station name in Irish alongside it. However that is where the good news ends

The issues I've seen on BOTH sets:
- The units that have been upgraded seem to always have blank side screens
- They're using an old destination list, since they don't know Clongriffin exists.
- Announcements are not always bilingual, I herd some stations be called in only English.

So instead of fixing the 85xx's that don't work, we now have 8100s that don't work properly as well that worked fine for years.

Great job.
