Hollywood comes to Wyre Dock - err.... well not quite

September 2, 2015

The extensive tram collection stored quite openly at Wyre Dock was the subject of extensive filming by famous Director - Nick Meskell during glorious sunshine this week.  His blockbuster sequel to earlier episodes of  'Starr Gate' is promised,  to coincide with the 130th commemoration later this month of Blackpool's trams.   A special edition of 'Trams' will also contain a photographic essay on the Trust's collection among many other episodes recorded in the past few months.


Some of the Trust's trams are not quite in a pristine state;  but from the filming 'rushes' seem to be withstanding the rigours of the Fylde coast's weather - and are far from graveyard hulks favoured in the gothic thrillers of other producers.   


Released at the North Pier Odeon - 'Starr Gate Returns' film  will be a must have collectors item when it becomes available, together with its print special.  Make sure of your copy to avoid disappointment.     Image :   John Woodman   Note the flora surround
