The annual calendar has proved to be a sustained success so much so that we have run out of copies of the 2020 edition which became available in May this year. Regretfully we can accept no more orders through the Shop Page.
We are planning for TWO calendars for 2021 in recognition of the Centenary of Blackpool's Bus Operations which began with a short shuttle service linking Thornton's Railway Station with the Tramroad Station on Victoria Road in Cleveleys centre. Using two diminutive buses this initial motor bus service grew into a network of routes complementing the extant town tram services in Blackpool - and an exponentially expanding mixed fleet of vehicles.
The trams will receive their usual coverage together with a companion 2021 Bus Calendar featuring different types of Blackpool Corporation's varying fleet through successive decades. Each calendar will be to the familiar format to date and priced seperately. We hope to publish both calendars earlier in the year assuring larger print run. Further details will be notified on this site and through our local partners.
