New Iarnród Éireann train carriages arrive at Dublin Port from South Korea

Iarnród Éireann took delivery of the first three Intercity railcars from a new batch of 41 wagons on order at Dublin Port today.

The wagons come from the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai Rotem and were financed by the National Transport Authority as part of the National Development Plan.

The 41 cars will enter service after commissioning early next year, allowing for additional services and additional capacity on both intercity and commuter routes.

Passenger demand continues to rise post-Covid, Iarnród Éireann said, with intercity demand in particular nearing full recovery.

As part of the process, Iarnród Éireann and the NTA will conduct a public consultation with passengers to confirm the service improvements with the new carriages.

The additional 41 cars will increase the Hyundai Rotem Intercity railcar fleet operating on the Iarnród Éireann network from 234 cars to 275 cars.
