News coverage from the Blackpool Tramway from the winter months of 2008/2009:

Winter 2008/2009 was probably the last 'normal' winter for the Blackpool Tramway. With full closure expected in future years and then 'Supertrams' this was the last opportunity to see the old system in operation.

If you thought nothing happened in winter - you're in for a surprise! Thanks to a large number of private hires and enthusiast tours some of the more exotic trams were used and featured on this programme are:

  • Standard 147 and 717 on Santa specials
  • Box 40 on an enthusiasts tour to Fleetwood in dramatic lighting conditions
  • Extended coverage of the farewell running day for Railcoach 679 with Coronation 304 out as well - includes 679s last ever trip to Fleetwood and crossing at Foxhall
  • 636 returns and testing starts south of Pleasure Beach
  • A rare outing for a Twin car on a private hire after midnight
  • Three double deckers work another private hire
  • See 'The Stig' from BBCs Top Gear programme launch 762s new advert plus Centenary and Jubilee cars on the winter service including the shortened Pleasure Beach - Little Bispham service from January

Western Train Report:
The latest news on the restoration of the Western Train including the big 'switch on'. For the first time in ten years, 733+734 are hooked up to the power and illuminated.
