In this edition of “Picture in Time” it gives us another chance to see one of the Metro Coastlines liveried Twin Cars in action on the Blackpool Tramway.
Running trailer first here we see 685+685 on the approach to Bispham in 2010. The tram is operating a service which will be running to Thornton Gate and looking into the tram beyond the driver we can see just a solitary passenger on board although there could be more in the motor or further into the trailer. As can be seen here Set 5 is in the Line 5 Metro Coastlines Red & Yellow livery; this was the last of the Twins to get a repaint into this style and it would share these colours with Rebuilt Balloon 724. The tram can now be seen in Green and Cream once more but is sidelined from service awaiting the completion of a rewire.
