Rolling stock

InterCity services are operated using a mixture of locomotive pulled coaching stock and DMUs. In 2006, deliveries began of 67 new Mark 4 coaches specifically for InterCity use in an order costing approximately €117 million. These are formed into 8 carriage trains, pulled by a 201 Class locomotive, and operate an hourly service between Cork and Dublin. The entry into service of the Mark 4 stock allowed the Mark 3 coaching stock to be cascaded to other routes, allowing in turn the withdrawal of the elderly "Cravens" and Mark 2 coaches. In 2007, the first of a planned 183 coaches of the new 22000 Class Diesel Multiple Unit were delivered, of which 150 units will be for InterCity, totalling approximately €400 million. These new trains, which will be in either three or six car formations, will replace the Mark 3 coaches currently in use on the routes between Dublin and Limerick, Galway and Waterford and the 2800 Class and 2900 Class DMUs on the Dublin to Sligo and Dublin to Rosslare services, and on the services that do not terminate in Dublin. The DMU rolling stock will then be transferred to the expanded Commuter services over the next few years. For the Manfred Mann album, see 2006 (album). ...

Future

The Transport 21 project will see several hundred million euros invested by the Irish Government in improving the railway network. This will see connection of some of the radial lines out of Dublin, which will enable inter-regional services to be operated without travelling through the capital. A major part of this will be the reinstatement of the Western Rail Corridor between Ennis and Claremorris, a route totalling 110km/68.5 miles; Phase 1 of this will reopen in three stages: Map of the West of Ireland, showing the Western Rail Corridor and ex-GSWR line south of Limerick in green, other ex-MGWR lines are in red. ...

  • Stage 1 - Ennis to Athenry - this will link Limerick and Galway, and will see an InterCity service start in approximately 2008-2009.
  • Stage 2 - Athenry to Tuam - this is due to open in around 2011 and will reinstate the rail network to the town of Tuam.
  • Stage 3 - Tuam to Claremorris - this is due to be completed in 2014.

Once Stage 3 is completed, the Westport, Galway and Limerick lines from Dublin will be connected, allowing regional InterCity services to be run between these destinations without having to travel via Dublin. 2011 (MMXI) will be a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ... WGS-84 (GPS) Coordinates: 53. ... 2014 (MMXIV) will be a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Phase 2 of the WRC project is projected to see the reinstatement of the line between Claremorris and Collooney via Knock Airport, a route totalling 74km/46 miles, which will connect the Sligo line to WRC. In addition to allowing travel to Sligo, this will have the added benefit of installing a rail link to Knock Airport, which is currently served by only by buses. Phase 2 is however not included in the Transport 21 plan and has not received any official confirmation. The total cost of the work required to implement Phase 1 and Phase 2 has been estimated at approximately €365 million. In addition, the cost of the new rolling stock ordered (Mark 4 coaches and 22000 Class DMUs) is over €500 million. Horan International Airport (IATA Airport Code: NOC) more commonly called Knock International Airport (see Knock), is located near Charlestown, County Mayo, Ireland. ...
