Something very different from what I usually post…. A historic moment in Dublin Transport history took place on Saturday the 27th of March 1982. It was the last scheduled run in Dublin of an open backed bus (RA 138 model). The run took place on the 23 route to Drimnagh.
My Father, who had heard that the final run was happening, brought me along. A crowd assembled at the Conyngham Road Bus Garage and had their picture taken with 5 different types of bus with the old one (an R 1 ?) coming up from the Transport Museum for the day. The other 4 would have been in service at the time.(I’m 4th from the left in the anorak)
Oddly enough I later worked in Dublin Bus, being one of the last Bus Conductors.
