Broadway to Blackpool : An Update
The final proofs required minor editing work which is still ongoing. The book will be at the printer October 1st and we expect copies available within ten days thereafter. For disappointed visitors to Blackpool over the past tram events - apologies.
Covering the story of how centre entrance double deck trams (rarities anywhere in the world) arrived on Blackpool Promenade in the 1930s, and have remained ever since, is a niche in tramway history now amply illustrated in this new 120 Page book.

Copies can be obtained online through our Shop and the Promenade Visitor Centre as well as Brooks Collectables on Waterloo Road and Toys2Save at Cleveleys Tram Station.
Ian Allan Bookshop in Birmingham and the National Tramway Museum will have copies for sale during October.
The next title due from Rigby Road Publishing is the long awaited album dealing with Blackpool's Municipal (and Company) buses from their first introduction in 1921 to the latest deliveries for 2019/20. Further details will be published early 2019.
