This week on British Trams Online

Last weekend saw another weekend of intensive heritage tram action in Blackpool with the latest Gold timetable in operation in connection with Tram Sunday, which unsurprisingly took place on Sunday. But to make a weekend of it the heritage trams were running their intensive service on the Saturday as well with the best service all the way to Fleetwood Ferry since the opening of the upgraded tramway. With trams up to every 20 minutes to Fleetwood it was an opportunity not to miss to see traditional trams running through the streets of Fleetwood and this week's Photo Gallery comes from Blackpool with a selection of images from Saturday 15th July. Despite slightly damp conditions it didn't dampen the sight of regular heritage trams and of course we also had the return of Brush 623 to add even more excitement.

Picture of the Week: Blackpool Brush 623

Having been launched into service the night before Blackpool Brush 623 was the main highlight of another weekend of Gold heritage tram operation. On loan from the Heaton Park Tramway 623 brings the wartime Green and Cream livery style back to the tramway adding even more variety to the colours on offer in Blackpool. This view shows 623 coming out of Pharos Street on 15th July with a return trip to Pleasure Beach.
