Gallery 277: Blackpool Tramway End of an Era - Thursday 3rd November 2011
This is the second of five photo 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 Thursday 3rd November with the continuation of the single deck daytime/double deck evening service. Noted in service on this day were Brush Cars 631 and 632, Centenary Cars 642, 645, 646, 647 and 648, Illuminated Trawler 737 (in use on service during the day, on Illumination Tour duty and specials afterwards), Balloon Cars 709, 711, 723 and 724 and Jubilee Car 761. Balloon 717 was out on a TDE and all three Illuminated Cars were used on tours in the evening (the Train was also used on a Private Hire during the morning).

Photographs in this Gallery were taken by Gareth Prior on 3rd November 2011.
