First night of Illumination Tours

The Western Train boarding passengers for the Illuminations Tour at the new loading point at the Pleasure Beach
On a notice published back in April, the original plan was for the Heritage Tours to switch to evening running from 31st August, starting at 5pm. A subsequent notice was issued saying there would be no tours of any sort on 31st August (Illuminations switch-on night). Yesterday (1st September), no Heritage Tours ran at all, only the three illuminated trams were out on tours, beginning their tours of the Illuminations at 8pm.
