Views of the DART.

Dublin Area Rapid Transit—April 2014.

In 1984, the DART began electric services between Howth and Bray. This offered an improvement to existing Dublin suburban services by wiring existing routes. The service was later extended to Greystones and Malahide.

The line between Pearse Station (formerly Westland Row) and Dún Laoghaire (formerly Kingstown) had been opened in 1834 and is considered the world’s oldest suburban railway.

The hum of DART’s electric multiple units are a familiar tone of Dublin transport.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve made several images of DART trains during my travels around Dublin. All were exposed with my Canon EOS 7D.

The DART crosses over lines leading toward the North Wall—one of the few grade separated junctions in Ireland.
