Dart overhead lines test coach(?)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Looking for images as always! There was a bogie coach in yellow per way livery that spent much of its life parked up in the sidings at the back of Pearse Street Station. It was unique in that it had a pantograph on the roof and an unusual body profile. Any pictures or info appreciated. I assume it was used to test the overhead lines when the Dart was first brought in to use.

Was an old Laminate Brake coach, modified with a flat roof to make it more suitable to work on top of. The Pantograph was raised to earth the overhead wires. Now scrapped as detailed above, all overhead line maintenance work done with road/rail trucks that can be seen behind Connolly Station
