    ICR 22000 weight

    Hi all,
    I know I posted a similar question before but still puzzled as to the exact weight of the ICR 22000 trains. Viewed one recently at the 'metal bridge' Wicklow. These trains are fairly heavy for DMU's and are quoted as weighing 63tonnes per car on wikipedia? For a DMU they are hefty and the 'metal bridge' was rumbling as the train passed over at slow speed. According to the figures quoted a 4 piece 22k would weigh a hefty 252 tonnes! Would anyone be able to clarify the correct weights please?

    Those loaded weights would be about right. Empty they range from 47.1 to 50.1 tonnes depending on the unit

    A1 Driving W/catering 50.1
    A2 Driving standard 49.4
    B1 / B2 Standard intermediate 47.1/47.3

    Good man again Snapper, your a mine of information, they certainly are pretty heavy trains, that still makes a four piece the guts of 200t ish, or a 181 and 4 cravens (ballpark)!

    And railcars are supposed to be light!
