Dublin Bus VL 2, a Volvo B10L with Alexander Belfast Ultra body is seen in Dun Laoghaire in September 2006.
By this time, the gas powered version ( VL 6 ) had returned to the UK, so only VL 1 to 5 were left in service, usually settling on routes 63 & 111.
Route 111 was still an all day route compared to the peak version nowadays, so at least one VL type could normally be seen shuffling about up & down to Loughlinstown Park.
VL 2 was the most reliable of this most unreliable bus for Dun Laoghaire, its perhaps very lucky that only such a small number were delivered to Dublin Bus.
