Hiya Enviro ! went to the Clarion this morning, sadly I hadn't checked here before I went up, so didn't know about Michael being there. First one I ever went to, great collection of models, nearly too many to to take in, it was certainly very well attended and it was only 11am !! Saw a few models of tri axles (real know all now!!), but older versions, no Enviro 500 :( The next time they will be back in the Clarion will be October, so I'll know better what sort of prices things will have, although there was some real bargains there, got a few things so it was all good. It is the same Michael I was speaking to the last time we were in contact I assume, sorry to miss him.

Is Hazletts still there (behind bus in 3rd. photo)

Also is that the Arcadia in the backgorund of the 2nd. photo.

Amazing how buses change without people noticing.

Remember a chap jumping off a bus in Pearse Street one morning and his ring got caught in the bar. Dont know how he did not loose his finger. Remember the conductors throwing old till rolls out to us from the back of the bus.

Really incredible to think people used come down a stairs and stand holding a bar waiting for the bus to stop. Never heard of anybody falling off.

Took the brand new-type No 7 bus from town today. Don't know the manufacturer but will get a photo soon. They have a full fleet of them on the number 7 route - all consecutively numbered 12 D 35993 onwards

The amazing thing about it - it has WiFi aboard

Spudseamus,

I hope you appreciate the effort that has gone into getting Dublin Bus to get a whole new fleet of clean buses with WiFi just so you will be able to travel in style during your visit to the auld sod. I never go upstairs meself but the views from the photos that Grammer posted are so good (no smoke cloud) I might venture up there again and do a bit of sightseeing.
Now there is an idea for a gathering --a Dublin Bus Gathering for 2013! you heard it here first.

I have not seen that but must look out for it as I would be interested in that type of program. TG4 is a brilliant station.

Incidentally can you watch RTE Player in the UK. I thought it was blocked just as we cannot watch BBC player over here.

Maybe there is a trick to it?

Slightly off topic here, but if you want to see that programme about bus(s)es use a vpn to place yourself in the country showing it.

Thanks for that tip Enviro. Will do. Just back last night from a trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. Great news about your grandchild.
