Trams returned to Dublin in 2004, with two separate routes, known as the Red and Green lines. This DVD starts with construction scenes, and the trams being built at the Alstom factory in La Rochelle, France. This is followed by a detailed look at the operation of both lines, including visits to their respective depots.
The Red Line links Connolly and Heuston mainline stations, before heading out to Tallaght, in the south west suburbs. The Green Line terminates at St Stephen's Green, and, after traversing Harcourt Street, and Adelaide Road, climbs onto the alignment of the former Harcourt Street to Shanganagh Junction railway line, to head southwards to Sandyford. Both lines are operated by Alstom 'Citadis' trams, the Red Line using 26 x 30m long 'Type 301' cars, and the Green Line using 14 of the longer 40m 'Class 401' cars.
