Dublin LUAS Cross City First Service Views—26 January 2018.

Over the last few years I’ve posted a variety of photos showing Dublin’s LUAS Cross City tram line under construction and trial/training runs.

In December 2017, this new LUAS service commenced from St. Stephens Green (at the north end of the original Green Line service) to Broombridge on Dublin’s Northside. But, at that time, I was elsewhere.

So last Friday (26 January 2018), Mark Healy and I went for a spin out to Broombridge and back. I made digital photos with my Lumix LX7 and colour slides with my Nikon N90S.

These are a few of my digital views.

  1. LUAS is 4 ft 8.5 inches. Irish Rail/NIR tracks are 5 ft 3 inches.
    I haven’t seen Railway Age in a long time, but I’ll try to pick up a copy.

    My simple question: Is LUAS standard of Broad Gauge as Irish Rails.?????
    Item 2. Nothing to do with LUAS, but do you get Raiway Age ?? Anyway in the latest Issue The Railroader of the Year is Jack Hellmann of G & W (14 Pages long article) with pics, only one of the Australian unit. I know you are likely a FAN of G & W.

    No scenes yet from “Nightmare on College Green”, not by Stanley Kubrick.
