The spec which isn't publicly available

Mix of fixed 4 and 8 coach sets of 20-21m coaches
1 toilet per 4 coaches
Battery is expected to weigh in at 3.5-4 tons per coach, life span of 10-15 years for battery
100kph on battery, 140kph+ on overhead
Range of 50km on battery
Immediate need for 500, provision for 100 more in agreement
Maynooth line is first in the queue for the trains

New depot most likely to go in near Maynooth, this will in time replace Fairview
