Opened in 1987 the DLR has become one of the most successful and well-used modern light rail systems in the world, carrying a staggering 101 million passengers in 2013/2014!
Extended on numerous occasions, today the railway serves five principal terminals over 23 route miles and operates 149 trains, built between 1991 and 2010.
