Throwback Thursday (30)
A trip back to 1984 this week to KC 1 in Conyngham Road Garage. This was the first of an eventual 202 KC single-deckers built for city services in Ireland. Most were built in the Bombardier factory in Shannon but this one was built in Hamburg by FFG in 1981. The bus lasted fifteen years in service seeing the transition from CIE to Dublin Bus and spent its working life at Conyngham Road. The last KC was withdrawn in Dublin in 2001.
Dome photos on KC 1 in its original tan livery can be found on Dublinbus.cc:
