Dublin LUAS at Georges Dock

Dublin’s LUAS tram system opened twenty years ago.

I recall photographing the original construction of both Green and Red Lines.

The Red Line extension through the Docklands to the Point opened in 2009, which makes this route 15 years old.

Last week, Kris and I stayed near Georges Dock (on the Docklands extension), and made several trips on the LUAS around the city.

The original 3001-series trams are beginning show their age. It’s fascinating for me to have witnessed the maturing of the trams and the growth of the system. I’ve been photographing LUAS trams since before the system opened, with some of my eariest images dating back to 2002, when the trams were were stored without numbers at the Red Cow depot.

I made these images with my Nikon Z7-II.
