Gallery 276: Blackpool Tramway End of an Era - Wednesday 2nd November 2011
This is the first of five collections from the last few days of traditional tramway operation in Blackpool before the full Supertram upgrade is introduced at Easter 2012. In this gallery are images from Wednesday 2nd November when the single deck daytime/double deck evening service was reintroduced following two bizarre days of complete double deck operation (coming after the busy half term week!). Noted in service on this day were Brush Cars 631 and 632, Centenary Cars 642, 644, 645, 646, 647 and 648, Balloon Cars 707, 718 and 723 and Jubilee Cars 761 and 762. In addition Engineering Car 754 was out involved in rewiring north of Little Bispham whilst all three Illuminated trams were out in the evening with Trawler 737 only used on specials with Frigate 736 also being used on specials after its Illuninated tour.

Photographs in this Gallery were taken by Gareth Prior on 2nd November 2011.
