Description

Easter 2007:
A comprehensive look at the Easter holiday with the reopening of the line to Starr Gate. See double deckers testing the new track on the Thursday and then trams return on the Friday morning.

Enjoy a ride on the new track filmed from Boat 602 - the first journey by an open top tram car over the new track plus:

  • Exclusive footage from the tram depot with 623 in 'Wartime' livery leaving for the first time
  • Doubles and singles on service on Saturday
  • Easter Sunday evening with cars 40, 66, 604, 605 and 706 on specials
  • 706 uses the crossover at Pleasure Beach
  • Easter Monday with 622 making a rare outing on Fleetwood service
  • The 646 breakdown at Thornton Gate

May 2007:
Footage from the May Day Bank Holiday weekend with Stockport 5 and 40 on enthusiasts specials. See both trams on the rarely used crossovers at Norbreck and Gynn Square.

After nearly two years in store, Sheffield 513 returned to the prom and is featured working enthusiasts tours plus:

  • 703 and 710 on driver training
  • Single deck service
  • 706 with the Blackpool FC victory parade
  • A visit to the tram depot and workshops with repaints for 719 and 726

Western Train Report No.1:
The first of a series of features looking at the restoration of the Illuminated Western Train which began in late April.

In conjunction with Blackpool Transport we are filming the entire project and this first review looks at the early stages with 733 being stripped to a shell and 734 moving into the Body Shop.

Time Traveller:
The man with the time machine goes back exactly a decade to the Saturday of the May Day Bank Holiday weekend in 1997.

What a difference a decade makes with the likes of 607, 619 and 679 (all now 'mothballed') and 606 (now in America) in service. See 724 pre-overhaul and many long gone advert and fleet liveries.
