NI Railways has three of these locomotives, which are now mainly used for ballasting duties since their replacement on the Enterprise and other passenger duties.
In 2013 an overhaul programme started for all eighteen class members which includes an engine rebuild, refurbished bogies, new panels, new cabs and a new slate grey livery complete with European numbering.In 2016, several members of the class received a commemorative plaque beneath their handbrakes in recognition of their 40 years of service with CIÉ and Iarnród Éireann.Loco 071 was repainted back to its original CIÉ Supertrain livery of black and orange in May 2016, with its first working thereafter being the RPSI diesel tour from Dublin to Waterford and Limerick Junction.9 locomotives overhauled in new Slate Grey railfreight livery. It included transfers, brass detailing (railings, fans, grills) and flush glazing.Note the paint included is the Golden Brown hue and not the existing deep orange (RAL2011).She added: 'The reality is that they command little support.

The Córas Iompair Éireann 071 Class or Northern Ireland Railways 111 Class is a General Motors Electro-Motive Division EMD JT22CW series diesel-electric locomotive used in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Serbia utilises four similar locomotives as JŽ series 666.
Currently all the CIÉ locomotives remain in service, being used on freight and permanent way trains.
NIR 112 was on long term loan to Iarnród Éireann from April 2003 until September 2006, when it was returned to Northern Ireland Railways.
They remain in use for permanent way & engineering duties, and very occasional stock movements and occasional tour trains for the RPSI.
