Gallery 336: Blackpool Trams - 10 Years Ago


Another Balloon car which was starting to show its age by 2002 was 704, seen here in its striking advert livery for the Eclipse show, held at the Pleasure Beach Globe theatre. This car was removed from service after the 2003 season due to roof defects, which unfortunately turned out to be much worse than anticipated, and it never ran in Blackpool again. Today, 704 is owned by the Lancastrian Transport Trust, but having been heavily stripped for parts and now being subjected to open air storage, it remains to be seen whether a planned restoration will ever materialise for the car.

British Trams Online is an enthusiast run website for enthusiasts. It should be able to be viewed at all screen resolutions but I do advise you that it is probably best at 1024x768. The site is owned, maintained (and in the main written) by Gareth Prior. Any comments or suggestions please email.
