More Snow in Blackpool

Flexity 007 north of Lowther Avenue heading for Fleetwood on the morning of 21st January
After last Friday's light covering of snow in Blackpool, residents woke to snow again this morning, this time though the snow continued on and off all day, reaching about 2 cm deep in the worst hit areas around South Promenade before the thaw set in as temperatures crept above freezing during the morning. The Flexity 2 trams coped admirably with the snowy conditions, with no gaps in the service noticed during the day.
