Irish railways Class 22000 train Connolly station

The 22000 Class are the latest Diesel multiple unit trains to be introduced by Iarnród Éireann in Ireland.

In a new departure for Iarnród Éireann they will be the first railcars to operate on express InterCity routes.

Supplied by Mitsui of Japan in an order totalling approximately €400 million, the fleet is being built by a partnership between Rotem of South Korea and Tokyu Car Corporation of Japan, who supplied the bogies. The first sets were delivered in March 2007.

The initial order for 120 vehicles was increased to 150 in 2005 for InterCity services. In March 2007, a €79 million order was placed for a further 33 vehicles to be used primarily on the outer Dublin commuter network. There are to be 46 sets in all: thirty-one 3-car sets and fifteen 6-car sets of two different layouts

On the last Friday of July 2007, I witnessed the Trial run of the latest DMUs 22000 Class as they passed by Saunders Court (bedroom window) These DMUs are the most stylish on the market and beat European counterparts. Congratulations to Irish Rail for going East. I look to the day when Irish Rail will be the first European Country to invest in the latest High Speed Trains -KTX II from Korea
