The latest new title from Rigby Road Publishing is now available. Blackpool's trams and buses in the 1960s is recounted with many new photos of the town's transport during a hectic decade of change.
Now online from our Shop and the Visitor Centre on Blackpool Promenade, as well as Toys2Save in Cleveleys (opposite the tram stop) - the new book retails for £26.00. Profusely illustrated in A4 Landscape format over 120 pages the title provides a flavour of how Blackpool's transport operation provided services on long familiar routes. The demise of the town's street tram services is recounted in brief; as is phasing out of the centre entrance bus fleet in favour of open rear platform double deck buses from Metro Cammell. Two examples are seen here operating tram replacement service 12 on Lytham Road.
Heritage trams, trailer trams, new illuminated trams and a cull of the fleet are among the noteworthy developments taking place over the decade. The initial print run is limited and to ensure your copy for Christmas early orders are recommended.
