ELECTRIC TRAINS ON THE WAY

Irish Rail says it plans to lease or buy second-hand trains to ease the rail capacity crunch while it’s waiting for an order of 600 new trains to be filled in 2024.

The company issued tender documents today seeking a mix of electric and hybrid units to replace the ageing Dart fleet and run on upgraded train lines across Ireland.

It’s also looking for pre-owned trains it could modify to fit Irish tracks.
