A Tram on the Promenade

The first tram to exit the depot after the Winter closure was Engineering Car 754 which was noted in use on new South Promenade. At this time the majority of the track has now been finished with only the loop and depot track yet to be laid. Despite this passenger services are not expected to resume until 2012 as this section will be reserved for testing the new Bombardier Flexity 2 trams with the first now expected for delivery in June 2011.

As part of the Heaton Park Tramway’s Blackpool Day 706 “Princess Alice” was loaded on the 18th of November in preparation for its departure. Although not confirmed as of yet, 706 is presumed to have departed today (19th November).
