Spring 2015: News from the Blackpool Tramway from spring 2015 with the commencement of the brand new Heritage tram service. Balloon 717 was first, used on a Dine and Ride event and then it’s the four-day Easter Weekend. With the new 'Gold' service using six trams at once, the likes of 40, 66, 147, 227, 230, 700 and 706 are all filmed; Hollywood came to Blackpool in early May with the shooting of a major production outside Blackpool Tower. The tram service was split with Flexitys turning back at North Pier and 711 and 719 were used on a special Starr Gate - Manchester Square shuttle; There's full coverage of the May Day and Spring Bank Holiday weekends with a mini feature on 715 which returned to service after five years.
