Blackpool 634 to be launched at East Anglia Transport Museum this Easter!

The much anticipated launch amongst Blackpool tram enthusiasts of Brush Railcoach 634 is set to take place this Easter after the completion of testing and commissioning work on the tram which only arrived at the East Anglia Transport Museum in November 2023. To mark the occasion the museum are due to run a Blackpool Tram Weekend throughout the Easter weekend.

Scheduled to take place on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th, Sunday 31st March and Monday 1st April the main event of the Blackpool Tram Weekend will be the official launch of 634 back into service. Carrying its special Terror Tram livery (an approximation of a previous advertising livery the tram carried during its operational days in Blackpool) the Fylde Transport Trust owned tram will be used in service for the first time since 2004.

Since withdrawal it has undergone significant attention from previous owner, Andy Ashton, and then the Fylde Transport Trust and now volunteers at the East Anglia Transport Museum to prepare it for this occasion. After arriving at Carlton Colville in November 2023 the tram has seen testing and commissioning take place and now it is set to operate in service once again.

As well as the launch of 634, on both Good Friday and Easter Saturday (29th/30th March) should see two other Blackpool trams in service with Marton VAMBAC 11 and Standard 159 set to be used.

Other highlights of the weekend will include:

  • Free vintage bus service
  • Tram displays
  • Easter Treasure Hunt (Saturday/Sunday)
  • Plus all the usual Museum attractions

This will also be the first opening of the 2024 season at the East Anglia Transport Museum which is located in Carlton Colville near Lowestoft in Suffolk.
