Photo of the Week - Week 31:

Former Harristown DT7 is seen operating Route 27B on Ardlea Road towards its end of days with Dublin Bus, the 9th October 2017 (click on photo for larger version).

This week its one from the archives. The 27B has been a very regular allocation in Harristown. Back in 2007, it was EVs, then when the EVs moved on to Summerhill for the 123, it became AX class. Recently the AX class have released their grip of this route, with the VG class taking most of the duties these days. Back in October 2017, the end of days for the DT class was around the corner, and every allocation was an opportunity. To my surprise on the 9th October, DT7 showed up on an afternoon lap on Route 27B. It only did one lap, having been on the 39 that morning. I was delighted to get some photos, the 27B being a route I had caught DTs only a few times before. Little did I know at this stage that I would still be photographing DT7 to this day, though on Ashbourne Connect's 194, these days in a Brewery Tour livery.
