Geocache Description:

This cache will bring you to the Charlemont LUAS stop, one of the few LUAS stops on a bridge. From the station you will have a nice view on the Grand Canal.

grand canal view from charlemont luas station Sidetracked Caches are intended to provide quick cache-and-dashes at train stations (parking is available right beside GZ).

You don't have to get close to the tracks nor directly on the platform itself to get the cache. You may want to wait for the next tram to leave the station before you grab the micro. BYOP.

Please re-hide the cache where you found it, to ensure that commuting muggles don’t discover it!.

LUAS is a state of the art light rail transit system serving the greater Dublin area. Veolia Transdev Ireland operate Luas on behalf of Railway Procurement Agency, the authority responsible for the procurement of railway infrastructure systems in a public - private partnership.

The idea for a new tram or light rail system for the city of Dublin was first suggested in 1994, by a Dublin Transportation Initiative (DTI) report, which referenced the original Dublin tramways, once running over 60 kilometres (37 mi)and reaching most parts of the city.

Construction finished in February 2004 and a period of testing and driver training began. 30 June 2004 was decided on as the official launch date of the Green Line. The first tram went into service for the general public at 3 p.m. Several days of free ridership and a family fun weekend took place to launch the system. The Red Line opened on 26 September 2004, with six days of free travel for the general public.

To date, the busiest day on the LUAS system was Friday, 21 December 2007 when 145,000 passenger journeys were recorded. The LUAS had 25.4m passengers in 2009.

Thank you Mollymee for providing the nice layout for the Sidetracked series, which I reused for this listing.
