The Museum will open at 9am for photo opportunities. Rita’s Tearoom will be open at 9:30am for early visitors, other facilities will open at 10am and the first tram will leave at 10:30am.

Blackpool 49, 167, 762 will be on display on the depot fan. Blackpool 166, Fleetwood 2, Balcony 40 and 630 will be in service (subject to availability)
