Default Irish Rail Bi-Mode Trains

Hi Folks,

I was reading one of the leading rail magazines(Rail Express). In it’s most recent edition, in the “Irish Angle” section it stated that;

“Irish Rail and National Transport Authority(NTA) are considering the possibility of acquiring a fleet of bi-mode trains for service in the Greater Dublin Area. It is understood that the Diesel/Electric Units would be used to extend the existing DART services beyond the present electrified area to Drogheda and Maynooth. Around 100 vehicles have been mooted, and IR hopes to have the units in service within four years”.

I take great interest in Irish Railways but am definitley no expert. Do you guys think this will ever happen and what’s your opinion on this? Thanks a million.
