719 Advertises Pleasure Beach

In replacement for withdrawn Balloon Car 721, 719 has received a similar but new version of the livery. Most noticable is the addition of a gold front although the “Big One” down the side is also new. Below is a photo:

Bispham Signals Activated

The automatic traffic signals at Little Bispham have now been activated and are in daily use. Thursday 8th July was the first day this came into operation which meant only transponder fitted trams are allowed past Bispham.

Tram Output Improving?

With double deckers now operating on the Cleveleys service the overall tram output seems to be improving with days such as the 10th of June having a high output. Although the weather was not good with spells of heavy rain the following trams were used:

Cleveleys – 709, 711, 717, 719, 724

Specials – 642, 644, 645, 647, 648, 672+682, 706, 707, 761
