A new, official Facebook page has been launched for Blackpool Transport’s heritage tram tours. Titled ‘Blackpool Heritage Tram Tours’ (hmm, that makes sense!) the page will provide information on the plans for upcoming operating dates for the fleet of heritage trams which have been amassed by the company, and will be updated by representatives of Blackpool Transport and the new charitable trust which is being set to look after the trams.
The page is expected to be used to provide details of upcoming events involving the heritage fleet, as well as news updates and information on which trams are planned to be in service ahead of the operating days. Although this information has usually been available beforehand on websites including British Trams Online, this is the first time that BTS themselves have posted such information online, and as such the new page is sure to become the first port of call for anyone planning a visit to Blackpool to sample the historic trams. As such, it can be considered the definitive source of such information.
The new page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/BlackpoolHeritageTramTours?fref=ts and can be viewed by anyone with an Internet connection, even if you do not have a Facebook account.
