Indeed and they have even removed surplus TMVs at Heuston (ones at P6-8) All they need to do now is move all ones in the ticket hall to the main concourse. Daily queues yet those in the ticket hall...

They rejected calls for a commuter morning service into Sligo in early 2018 from Longford (arriving 8/8.30). Yet fast forward 9 months and there is suddenly demand. Its simply not the case.

NTA own 22000s not sure if ownership of the rest. NTA have final say on 2700 refurb irrespective of ownership. By all accounts its just to costly to do it.
