Spring Bank Holiday Saturday

Saturday 24th May saw the start of three days of Heritage Tour operations in Blackpool. The star of the day was undoubtedly Pantograph Car 167 on loan for the summer season from the National Tramway Museum at Crich. The morning tour to Fleetwood was operated by Standard 147 and Pantograph 167. Open-top Balloon 706 Princess Alice was the third car to be rostered for Heritage Tour use. 706 was replaced by 717 during the afternoon due to heavy rain.
