When the fleet of trams that had kept Blackpool’s tramway working for around 135 years were replaced in 2012, a few of those that were ‘retired’ were kept and became the start of our Heritage Fleet.
Being anything from around 120 years old to as young as 50, they do take some maintaining and many are mothballed awaiting engineering time, and money, to bring them back into use. But that is our aim.
Here we tell the story of some of our trams and below is a selection of those that are around and about and can be seen at various times still on the rails between Starr Gate and Fleetwood.
If you’d like to know more about our fleet, you can order our Fleetbook from our online shop. It’s got photos and descriptions of all our trams.
