Blackpool Transport Yesterday

It already seems far off in time but only twelve years seperate the images of everyday scenes we were familiar with and today's omnipresentPalladium branded buses. Images by John Woodman

Metro Coastlines branding is seen on these three BTS examples on Market Street.

Jubilee Car 762 in its ReBlackpool promotion on a short working? from Bispham to Pleasure Beach while Centenary 648 approaches from Fleetwood also heading to Pleasure Beach. Stuart Pillar is recognised as the Tramways Engineer responsible for designing the two Jubilee Prototypes 761/762. 1979 built 761 has been saved for display in Blackpool's forthcoming tram museum through the initiative of the Fleetwood Heritage Leisure Trust when the tram was put up for disposal by BTS while 762 was acquired by the National Tramway Museum at Crich.
