Tourist "Train" between Galway City and Salthill

"Train" style bus, using single-story open sided carriages pulled by an engine - but running on the road, not on train tracks.   Photographed at the north end of Eyre Square in Galway city, Ireland.
Galway Tourist Train started running between Prospect Hill (opposite TK Maxx) and the acquarium in Salthill, in late May 2013.

Initially running hourly between 10am and 8pm.  A round-trip takes approximately 45 minutes,

The service operates on a hop-on, hop-off basis via a number of tourist sights in Galway City.

It is advertised as operating year-round: timetables are likely to vary according to the season.  See their website for fare and timetable information.
