22001/22002, Portlaoise, 15-08-2016
Normally a three car unit, the 1000 Heuston - Cork arrives as a six car set. This is however unusual, in that it is semi-permenatly coupled mix of cars from 22001 and 22002.
Trials of a new train protection system are being undertaken and 22001 has been fitted with the equipment. However, when not required for the trails the fitted cabs are coupled nose to nose, and the sets 1 and 2 operate as a fixed six car unit.
