New Colours on the Prom - More
Thanks to James Murgatroyd for an enhanced colour correct image of Flexity 016 in its pink themed sponsor livery - shown off for the first time in service today :
and the John Woodman version below :
And now for something completely different on the promenade. A delightfully revamped Flexity believed to be 016 in the fleet but without a number present instead a sponsor 'Pretty Little Thing' whose design tastefully and carefully avoids any vinyl cladding over the doors and glazing on the tram. Actually a big improvement on the by now dour corporate style adopted by Blackpool Council (not Blackpool Transport) in 2011. First day out in service for this newly branded car. Just in time for the Illuminations.
