3 - AX463
4 - AV420
5 - SG197

Very honourable mentions for EV46, AV426 and VG48.

Harristown
1 - AX620
2 - AX623
3 - AV337
4 - EV72
5 - Probably AV348 however I haven't been on it since her DBrook days, so otherwise maybe EV65.

Ringsend
1 - AX520
2 - AX529
3 - AX530
4 - AX461
5 - EV63 - always liked that bus.

Phibsboro
1 - AX587
2 - AV446
3 - SG1
4 - SG7
5 - VG10 - Or else SG14, close call, but always liked VG10

Conyngham Road
1 - AX610
2 - AX608
3 - AX459
4 - AX460
5 - Either AV363, AV401 or SG270.

Donnybrook
1 - AX648
2 - AX645
3 - AX647
4 - GT7
5 - SG311 or GT21

Clontarf
1 - SG370

You can add Broadstone into the mix if you wish.

Picking only 5 from certain garages is torture because there's so many beauties that are candidates.

Clontarf (I haven't really properly paid attention to Clontarf buses)
1) SG198
2) GT119 
3) GT61
4) GT62
5) GT117
I'm lost... 

Conyngham Road
AV406
AV409
AV410
AV413
AV411
Can't order these, but AV406, AV409 and AV410 are better than AV413 and AV411.

Donnybrook
1) AX521
2) SG244 
3) VT4
4) VT33
5) SG33
Special mention to SG237-242 and pretty much all VTs.

Harristown
1) AV348
2) AV349
3) AV418
4) AV419 I'm biased with AV418 and 419, I used to get them daily till they got removed from the 27B :angry:
5) AX546
I haven't gotten many Harristown AVs recently so I can't really rank them properly.

Phibsboro
1) AX587
2) VT46
3) VT44
4) VT52
5) VT60

Ringsend
1) AV398 Just because of how soothing it is when it is idle!
2) AX475
3) AX519 and AX520
5) AV414 and AV415 

Summerhill
1) AV395 
2) AV421
Can't rank the next 3, but definitely 05s excluding AV426 and AV427.
Special mention to SG192, SG193

AV348 is also my favourite in the fleet. I must get it one last time before it leaves but it's going to be difficult to get it.
