Dublin Bus DF694

Flickr album : Dublin Bus

Summerhill based Van Hool An68Atlantean on the southbound leg of a cross city 16A service.

The offside add was a colourful campaign from the 1990's, 'Yoplait the route for fruit'. Perhaps of note, is the manual dustcart, 'MZL 815' , for so long a part of everyday life in the city.

Scan from a slide. Dublin June 22nd 1991.

    Jonathan, superb 1991 mid summer shot, why was D694 on the 16A southbound on Grafton Street? was Dame Street/Georges Street closed on the day of the pic? As regards the MZL registered dustcart, there is one of them still in service around the Liberities. Just looking at D694, it was in very original 'as delivered condition' and hadn't been through the BMS at Inchicore and for that reason perhaps was chosen as a preservation bus by the TMSI at Howth where it now lives in retirement.

    P. Thank you. As far as I recall Dame Street was just fine, the problem was further along I think????

    Thats interesting about the dustcart, noted thank you. I would like to track it down. Yes bodywise 694 was close to original body mouldings OK. J
