Hi, how do I join musuem?
Also, does anyone know the fate of the Dublin Bus Costal Tours Bus, 70s model, which was used up to three year back. It was not open top but in remarkable condition for its age. Why the CEOs would want to scrap such cherished vehicles is unknown.
I presume you mean their atlanteans?? I thought their life ended more than 3 years ago... Unless it's the tree lopper you mean. That was open top though....
I Thick the one Darren refers to is D603 Which I think ended up being scrapped and ended up in Louth.
Steo, Jacks in Parnell Place?
Peephole working out ok?
D603 (First AN68 built) scrapped at Hammond lane 01/02 Stored in LC until then.
Why store it in LC only to move it back to Dublin to scrap?
any pictures of this bus?
Pea brain doesnt know that LC scrapped it.
603 sold/scrapped with Tours batch to Hammond Lane. Pics to as proof. Scrapped bar one (665) which was given to this feller..
Only other surviving tour bus is of course d635 which became tree lopper in 2000. Still alive and smoking. Would love to see shots of the hammond lane scrappings. Sad but interesting. Dave.
to the no it nothing flute 'f' 603 was broken up in LC the then biggest bus scrap yard in the country well before the tour Ds got scrapped.
