Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. By the early 1970''s the MED''s and units inherited from the GNR(I) had been in service for 20 years, and the MPD''s for 10 years. To replace these increasingly life-expired units, Northern Ireland Railways placed an order with BREL for 9 new DMU''s. These were to be built as four 3-car and five 2-car sets and were delivered in 1974/75. Structurally, the new trains were based on the British Rail MK IIb bodyshell, which NIR was already using for the Enterprise service. The new trains were named as the Class 80. The power cars were fitted with an English Electric 560 HP diesel engine, with electric transmission to two traction motors mounted on the rear bogie. The seating capacity of the power cars was 45, however after providing for wheelchair accommodation, this was reduced to 42. The vehicle also incorporated a guards/parcel compartment.
