Rigby Road Titles - News
A quickie to remind readers (and others) that the title 'Municipal Transport Heyday' is now available through a reprint. This covers the decade of the 1950s and Blackpool's transport in those busy years.
We will have reprint copies of 'Blackpool Corporation Tramways - Motorbus Operations 1921 - 1932' available from next week, together with the 2020 Souvenir Tram Calendar - how the years fly past !
One Hundred Years of Blackpool's Buses - is a work in progress due later next year. The follow on sequel to the 'Heyday' title is being prepared for publication this October - 'Municipal Transport Rationalisation'. This covers the 1960s and a host of changes starting of course with the 75th Anniversary of Electric Trams (1960) and moving quickly on to new trailer twin sets, tranches of new double deck open rear platform buses replacing the Burlingham centre entrance models, a mini fleet of illuminated trams, downsizing of Rigby Road Works - and much more.
