From my recollection, shortly after this, they put earlier D400s on the 6 and 6A for the late 80s as the routes gradually withered away. I remember heading out along the Merrion Road on D422 and the light covers kept coming off downstairs.Csalem wrote: It is 1985 and D 755 is seen on Eden Quay. The bus is on route 6 to Blackrock via Ballsbridge. The bus was nearly 10 years old at this point, having been delivered new in 1975. It lasted in service until 1994, ending its days with Dublin Bus.
Although the destination shows Blackrock, the route actually terminated near Abbey Park in Monkstown at a place referred to in the timetable as "New Link Road" although the actual road was unnamed at this time. The 6 in some ways served as a short working of the 7 and the 8 which went further south to Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey. There was also a 6A for a time which served Blackrock and Sandyford Industrial Estate. The last 6 ran in 1989.
The bus is in an all-over ad for Bailieboro Co-Op.
