Have they started getting lazy with the destination displays on the 22Ks out of Heuston? Spotted one leaving at 18:10 today with no destination and might have seen one yesterday as well....

The 6:30 out of Portlaoise is a 2x3 car set. Also not sure but it looked like the 6:30 from Carlow was a 2200 set. Only saw it as it came into Heuston this morning.

Passing Heuston earlier saw a 22K that seemed to be operating a Kildare commuter service.

The 6:30 Carlow Dublin service, the 17:35 & 20.05 Dublin Carlow. However the 20:05 may not be

The 9:30 to Waterford and 13:05 return services are the new trains as well.

Is the 15:05 service to Waterford still operated with the old train?

The 11:20 and 15:05 are still Mk3 operated services but won't be beyond the first few weeks of January.

There are 5 more 6 car sets to enter service, Galway line needs 1, Waterford 2, Tralee 1. The 5th frees up two 3 cars and gets all Mallow Tralee services converted

I was on this train a few weeks back and it was still a Mark III.

The 1735 to Carlow is a six car (2x3) set.

Great, thx.
I will be travelling on the 10th jan, so I guess MK3 will still be on the 1505. What about the 16:25? I've been trying to get on the new train for some time now, haven't had any luck until now.

Any idea if all the 22ks for the Waterford line are now in service, or are there more due to come on? The 18.25 service out of Heuston in particular is still the old train, and also the 07.35 out of Plunkett.

There are only 3 Mk3 links left, Galway, Waterford and Ballina/Westport on the weekends.

There are another 39 ICR's to enter service

Could some of the remaining Mk3s be moved to the Limerick - Waterford/Rosslare line? I heard not all the Mk3s are for sale.

They'd go down through the Cahir viaduct I'd wager.

They should keep them, or most of them anyway

Nothing wrong with the DDs (other than putting locos on fire)
