I would just like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my photographs this year. Unfortunately real life prevented Off The Beaten Track from getting an update, but I hope Throwback Thursday offered some interest.

The first Thursday in 2016 I started doing a Throwback Thursday looking back on some long lost bus scenes in Dublin. Today we have photograph number 52, the last one of 2016. The year started in Bray and so it seems appropriate to end in Bray. This time we are going back thirty years to 1986. KD 270 is seen on the 84A. This was a short 84 that only ran between Bray and Greystones. The bus is seen in Bray as it approaches the end of its journey. The 84A disappeared for a while, being replaced by the 184, but it has reappeared in recent times and now operates between Bray and St. Vincent's Hospital. Bray 29/12/1986
And with that the 2016 Throwback Thursday has come to an end, but it will continue in 2017. Happy New Year!

For the first shot of 2017 we are going back six years to 2011. On the face of it the shot does not look very remarkable. It is just a bus on the 33A in Balbriggan after making its way from Swords. However the destination is worth noting, for it says "Ballbriggan". For a period of time the destination screens on the 33 correctly had Balbriggan but the 33A for some reason gained an extra 'L'. This situation lasted a few short years before being corrected.
The route itself started in 2002. Dublin Bus proposed to run a more frequent 33A between Swords and Skerries/Balbriggan and reduce the number of services on route 33 which operated to Dublin. The idea was that passengers for the city would change in Swords onto the 41/41C. The plan was an failure and services were restored on the 33, with some departures on the 33A maintained. AX 633 Balbriggan 05/01/2011

A quick hop back five years this week to 2012. RV 608 is seen crossing the Samuel Beckett Bridge with a 15B to Benson Street from Stocking Avenue. The Beckett Bridge is the newest bridge over the River Liffey in Dublin, having opened in December 2009. It is designed to represent a harp, a symbol associated with Ireland. The 15B, along with the 15A, started using the bridge to access the Grand Canal Dock area of the city in December 2011, when their termini was relocated from Eden Quay. The bus itself was withdrawn before the end of 2012. 12/01/2012
