Blackpool Tramtown - 4th June 2022

Its the final part of our triology of Photo Galleries from Blackpool in early June and this time we go for a tour around Tramtown (or Rigby Road Depot to give it its original name). Started in 2021, guided tours around Tramtown have proven to be very popular with enthuiasts and the general public with people getting the chance to see behind closed doors of what goes on in the depot and workshops. With redevelopment work to come there also may not be many more years where you get to see some of the workshops in action.

A tour starts off in the Paint Shop (after a quick safety briefing) before visits to the Body Shop, Fitting Shop, Electrical Compound and then into the main depot to see some old friends in storage waiting for a time when they may get restored to use again. Tours include a history of the buildings and the trams as well as a look at what the future may hold. Like all good attractions it also ends with a shop!

* Tramtown tours take place throughout the year. To book your place on a tour visit
