Blackpool Update

Further to our post on 16th August, we can now confirm that the trams which we will be sending to Blackpool for their ‘Blackpool 125’ celebrations in September will be Oporto 273 which has already arrived in Blackpool, together with Blackpool Pantograph Car 167 and Blackpool “Toastrack” 2 both of which will leave for Blackpool shortly.

We would offer the following update on the “Blackpool 125” Tram tours - Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September 2010.

The tramcars taking part in the joint TMS / FTS tram tours on the weekend of Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 September will be as follows:

Saturday 11th will feature four Blackpool trams and will include B&F "Toastrack" 2 of 1898, B&F "Box" 40 of 1914, "Pantograph" 167 of 1928 and double-deck "Standard" 147 of 1924.

Sunday 12th will feature trams from the current running fleet from Crich and will include Oporto 273 (of 1928), Toastrack 2 (of 1898) and Pantograph 167 (of 1928).

Tickets are still available and can be ordered on line via www.freewebs.com/fyldetramwaysociety-blackpool/tmsftstours.htm
These tours should be one of the main highlights of the Blackpool 125 celebrations.
