Crich Helps Blackpool Celebrate 125 Years of Trams

We are delighted to be able to support Blackpool Transport Services Ltd in their forthcoming celebration of 125 years of continuous tramway operation.

We are currently preparing to loan to Blackpool Transport, a number of tramcars that will operate along the world famous promenade tramway during various events taking place in September.

Our workshop team have been very busy over recent weeks preparing the tramcars for their visit to the seaside.  It was intended to send several double deck trams but when this was trialled recently, it became apparent that the greenery in the vicinity of the Museum makes it extremely difficult to send these cars without damage. Therefore we are planning to send several single deck trams, some of which will be a pleasant surprise for visitors to Blackpool.   We will keep you infomred as plans unfold, be prepared for surprises!

The 125 Years of Trams events take place in Blackpool throughout September, to find our more visit http://www.blackpooltramevents.co.uk./

We are holding our own celebration of Blackpool trams during our Blackpool Bank Holiday Extravaganza on 29th and 30th August.
