A 2600 set 'the spare' has been sent up to Ballina for driver training to take over the Ballina Shuttle, this was promised to be in place in 1997

Manulla junction is to be rebuilt to allow a Dublin Westport train to use either platform, also allows the following to occur

Ballina Manulla Junc
Westport Dublin Arrives
Railcar departs for Wesport

In reverse
Westport Manulla
Dublin Westport arrives
Railcar departs for Ballina

While its possible with a locomotive its painfully slow much much quicker with a railcar

You can't board or leave Manulla Junc that said people have its requires some neck but you can, all it needs is a footbridge since the trains are stopping anyway
