NIR’s Spanish trains

Listen to this article

NIR’s 20 new CAF built railcars, the 4000 class, are now coming into service.

This has allowed the older diesel electric ‘Castle’ class (or 450 class) railcars to be mostly withdrawn from service.

A farewell tour was operated by the Model Railway Society of Ireland (MRSI) earlier this year however a few units remained in service.

The withdrawal of the 450 class will mark an end to the familiar sound of the English Electric ‘thumper’ in Northern Ireland.
