Irish Rail Announce Plans To Order Hundreds Of Electric Trains

However the company says it's not sure some routes will be electrified in time. 

The company plans to buy 600 trains over the next decade, first to replace the ageing Dart fleet and then to provide intercity services. 

But it's said the first trains delivered could be hybrids, just in case key routes can't be electrified before 2024.
