Book Launch: Saturday 16th November

Blackpool Trams 1950-1967 will be launched at The Blackpool Tram Shop on Saturday 16th November!

Just delivered from the printers, the book has been completed to a very high standard, on lovely thick glossy paper. Each copy is being certified, numbered and signed by the author.

If you have pre-ordered the book, these will be shipped on Friday and Monday.

The launch takes place between 10am and 4pm. The author will be present to personally sign copies. Refreshments will be served.

Why not make a day of it? Attend the launch, then pop into Blackpool and have a ride on the Heritage trams. As well as the book, we have all our other tram, railway and transport DVDs and books available in the shop.

NEW Steam Footplate Rides!

We are pleased to announce we have 2 new Steam Footplate Rides available to pre-order now!

Steam Driver's Eye View - Welsh Marches Line (Newport - Hereford - Shrewsbury)
Join us for this unique view along the Welsh Marches Mainline with an ex-Great Western Railway Castle Class Locomotive. Known historically as the ‘North & West Route’, our journey begins at Newport, before heading northbound, taking in the dramatic scenery as we climb to Pontypool & Llanvihangel. After a brief stop at Hereford, our journey continues north as we pass some timeless pieces of railway history, with plenty of GWR infrastructure dominating the scene, before we arrive at Shrewsbury.

With live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you. This program also features on-screen titles & locations.

Locomotive Featured: GWR Castle Class, No. 5029 ‘Nunney Castle’

Steam Driver's Eye View - East Coast Mainline: Volume 3 (Berwick - Edinburgh)
After crossing the Royal Border Bridge, we continue our journey along the final stretch of this famous Mainline from Berwick-Upon-Tweed, before crossing the actual border into Scotland. We continue to climb alongside the stunning cliff faces at 'Marshall Meadows Bay' up to Burnmouth before turning inland and speeding along the downhill gradients towards Reston. With the coastline insight once again near Cockburnspath, we run partly parallel with the original A1 road towards Dunbar and East Linton. From here we continue towards Scotland's Capital as we race past Craiggentinny Depot and into the final tunnels before emerging into Edinburgh Waverley Station.

With live sound recorded from the locomotive, we bring the action right to you. This program also features on-screen titles & locations.

Locomotive Featured: LNER A4 Class, No.60009 ‘Union of South Africa’.

The New Blackpool Tram Shop

The NEW Blackpool Tram Shop is now open!

The new shop is located on the outskirts of Blackpool at Whitehills Business Park, behind the huge B&Q, two minutes from J4 at the end of the M55.

There was an ongoing joke that if four people were in the old shop it was full and this may well have been true! The new unit eliminates all of this and has many benefits which include:

  • FREE customer parking, which we were asked for so many times
  • A huge first floor showroom, 10 times the size of the old shop
  • For the first time we will be able to display ALL of our DVDs and ALL of our books plus many other items - not just a selection
  • The shop is a new-build on a developing complex and on all those winter days of gale force winds and high tides - when we couldn’t open at North Pier - this is very much inland, less windy and drier!
  • We will be now be able to expand further, introduce more books, new tram memorabilia and some other very exciting new products yet to be announced

Shop opening hours are:
Mondays to Fridays: 10am to 5pm
Saturdays: 10am to 4pm
Sundays: Closed
