Throwback Thursday (26)

A trip back in time this week of twenty-six years to 1990. KD 1 is seen at a bus rally in the Phoenix Park. This was the first of 366 KD buses delivered to CIE between 1980 and 1983. These buses were built in Shannon by Bombardier and an extra one was built for and shipped to Baghdad. KD 1 itself was built in Hamburg in Germany by FFG. The last KD was withdrawn by Dublin Bus in 2000. KD 1 was based in Donnybrook Garage and that is reflected in the scrolls for route 8 in the photograph. This was the first route to have a KD operate on it. In light of recent sporting events, the ad for the World Cup in Italy is quite topical. Phoenix Park 30/06/1990
