Translink launches refurbished Enterprise train for Belfast-Dublin services

Translink NI (Northern Ireland) Railways today launched the first refurbished Enterprise train for cross-border passenger services between Dublin and Belfast.

Translink NI (Northern Ireland) Railways today launched the first refurbished Enterprise train for cross-border passenger services between Dublin and Belfast.

The service is part of the £12.2m Enterprise train upgrade programme being financed through the European Union’s Interreg IVA Programme, which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) with support from the Department for Regional Development and the Irish Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS).

"The transformation is incredible with vibrant, eye-catching new colour schemes and new Enterprise and Enterprise Plus branding on-board."

The €256m Interreg IVA Programme for Northern Ireland, the Border Region of Ireland and Western Scotland intends to supports cross-border cooperation.

The Enterprise cross-border rail service offers 1st Plus and Enterprise Class accommodation with a catering bar and trolley service.

Translink Group CEO Chris Conway said: "Customers will first notice the train’s striking modern new look with a stylish purple, red and grey livery. Stepping on-board, the transformation is incredible with vibrant, eye-catching new colour schemes and new Enterprise and Enterprise Plus branding on-board."

The carriages provide power sockets, free Wi-Fi, carpets, new tables, lighting, new signage, and internal fixtures and fittings.

The refurbished trains will eventually have a new electronic seat reservation display system.

"We also remain focused on good value tickets and customers can take advantage of web-fares from as little as £10 day return," Conway added.

"We are encouraging business customers to pre-purchase new carnet tickets for savings of up 38% compared to the cost of regular single tickets."

The Belfast-Dublin service will also provide a convenient access to Lisburn, Portadown and Newry.
