When i was in Cork about 4 or 5 weeks ago i seen DPC27 and i'm pretty sure DPC30 aswell, and i think i seen VWL129 some time obviously around that time
aswell, it does ring a bell somehow.
Limerick's only DWR - DWR16 - is now also withdrawn in Limerick along with all their DWM's and VWM's, and fire victims SR8 and MC2. Galways
DPC20 and especially DPC18 are absolute little rockets, 18 is a complete flyer, i hope she (and 20) stay around for a while. Was on both of them a couple of
weeks ago. Where were DPC11, 12, 13 and 14 based? I can't remember them. And anyone know where they are now? I haven't seen Galway's DPC15 and 17
in a good while.
A few more to be added to the Withdrawals list;
OP26, DWR16, All of Limericks DWM's, PL104, PL78, PL118, PD33, PL117, SR8 - All in Limerick, Withdrawn.

around i saw them last week the AM's were to replace DWR13-15 but it looks like that VWL155-157 took the place of the DWR's instead of the AM's
That's good to know, I had thought it strange that Limerick would withdraw 16 midibuses and lose an MC to fire, but only get 14 VWLs(not to mention
transfer VRs with apparently no replacements). I mean the VWLs are a popular, reliable bus and everything and a big step up from midibuses, but they're
not that good that you can shrink a small fleeet like Limerick's by 3 and not see a reduction in service quality and fleet availablity.
Strange that they would put a small capacity bus on a University route, surely this should be operated by the VWLs which can carry 18 extra skulls IIRC(77 vs
59 I think?)? Are BÉ Limerick not that good at the bus to route allocation like BÉ Cork used to be, or is it not a well utilised service?
Are there any other DWMs left in Limerick?
