Tribute to Marton Trams - Sold Out - PS

A number of recent orders for this now classic title means this title is no longer in stock or available online through our shop. It is pleasing to know that this book retains the interest of enthusiasts - and the original print run is now at an end. * Slight Correction - due to unexpected circumstances we find there is a single copy of 'Tribute to Marton Trams 1901 - 1962' still available through our online shop. First order received secures.

The title covering Blackpool's Buses in a sequential album format is next on the list of books to appear from Rigby Road Publications; followed by Blackpool's transport during the 1950s - 'Municipal Transport Heyday 1950 - 1959'. Both are scheduled for this year.

We are planning to go back a century to cover Blackpool's trams during the decade from 1910 to 1919 which will understandably also include two other tramways operating to the south and north of the resort - with not a bus in sight. We expect this title will be published during 2018. Unpublished photos and material on the three tramways during that decade are of course particularly welcome.

The 2018 Calendar should appear during May for sale in the usual outlets on the coast and through the online shop.

The deferred title dealing with Blackpool Transport's changing scene over the past decade 2009 - 2019 (Volume Five in the 'Tribute to Rigby Road' series) has plenty to deal with on both the tram and bus side, as well as two changes of management and a new tram depot to boot ensure this will be a highly readable title when it appears in 2019. A further book which relates the story of Blackpool's entry into one man operation of the trams (and some buses) is also now planned for 2019 to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of Jubilee Car 761 and its official launch at Rigby Road in 1979.

All of the above will keep the Author busy for the forseeable future.
