What’s New on British Trams Online? 18th February 2024

Its a nostalgic weekend for photos as we go back to 2006 and view of Blackpool’s Balloon Cars:

Photos: 20 Photos of… Blackpool Balloon Cars – September 2006

There are updates this week to the Blackpool Tramway (photo links), Edinburgh Trams (photo links), Manchester Metrolink (photo links), Volk’s Electric Railway (last operated dates) and West Midlands Metro (tram movemenets and photo links) Fleet Lists as well as the Edinburgh Trams (photo links) Advert List.

Plus events from the East Anglia Transport Museum for 2024 have been added to the Events Diary.

We’re going back to 5th September 2006 for this photo as we see two of Blackpool’s Balloon trams at Fleetwood Ferry before returning south towards Blackpool. Closest to the camera is 722 – a tram which was scrapped in 2009 – with company given by 703 (now owned by the FTT and stored at Rigby Road Depot. The trams also demonstrate both advertising (722 – Transport and General Workers Union) and fleet livery 703 – 1980s green and cream). (Photograph by Gareth Prior)
