[VIDEO] Buiding an Urban Railway: 30 years of DLR

The latest video offering from The B1M is very apt, given the major infrastructure projects; it celebrates 30 years of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR).

When it opened in 1987, the railway had 11 trains that serviced 15 stations; now, that figure is 145 trains connecting 45 stations.

It is a vast network, dwarfing the metro systems of cities such as Yokohama and San Francisco. Last year, more than 122 million passengers used the service.

The video shows how the DLR has grown over the years, how these extensions have taken place, and how the future aspirations will see the service continue to grow.
