Trams on the Promenade

The first tram operation since the Winter closure in November 2010 was of Brush 630 and Balloon 719 which were used for testing purposes. This was on the 14th of March with the two trams doing a Foxhall to Pleasure Beach run around mid-day. Testing is almost definitely going to happen on a regular basis now until the reopening on the 22nd of April, so Blackpool’s trams are back albeit not yet in passenger service.
