From the 1940s right up until 1960, special late night trains ran from Waterford to the Tramore dance halls. These trains were known locally as the ‘dance trains’.Advertisement for Special Dance Trains to Tramore,

The combined train & dance ticket entitled the holder to take one of the trains out to Tramore & admission to the Atlantic Ballroom.

Dancing went on until 2:00 a.m. & dance goers could catch the last train back to Waterford at 3:00 a.m. It was not unknown for a few of the revellers to take a walk on the beach & miss the train home! The last of the special late night ‘dance trains’ ran on August 23rd 1960.
