Blackpool Tramtown Tours - November 2021

In a couple of years where the repetitiveness of daily life has been all too apparent one of the most popular new heritage tram attractions has been in Blackpool where regular tours of Rigby Road Depot have been offered. Christened Tramtown and launching at the end of September 2021 the tours have been sell outs with people wanting to see behind the scenes of the depot wth glimpses inside the Paint Shop, Body Shop, Fitting Shop and, of course, the main depot shed to allow views of trams which haven't run for many years and probably won't for an even longer time. And with revenue from the tickets for the tours going towards the maintenance of the depot what's not to like! In this collection we feature the tour on 24th November 2021 with images of the trams both operational and non-operational. We also bring things more up-to-date with a few photos showing a tour on 8th January 2022. Photographers: Trevor Hall & Gareth Taylor
Photographs were taken on Wednesday 24th November 2021 & Saturday 8th January 2022.
