Default IE sends a Mark 4 to Tralee

A gauge test run to check for charter/special suitability.

Nothing terribly surprising the Mk4 fleet was bought with the plan to cover all peak services to Dublin on all Heuston routes.

To be honest Mark that rings no bell with me and I thought I was following it closely at the time. Doesn't the internal map only have Cork and Limerick?

In any event more use of underused stock and less pressure on the 22K fleet is welcome. If Alan Kelly was still at transport I'd expect to see platform extensions for Nenagh branch by GAA season

The internal maps have Cork, Limerick, Tralee and not 100% think Galway also. I dont think they can use the internal map for any route without changes. Its a poorly designed map anyway!

That was the original plan, but that was changed when the hourly Dublin/Cork service pattern concept was conceived.

Thanks. It's been about five years since I was on a Mark 4 so my recall was clearly faulty.
