Illuminated Trawler relaunched

Trawler 737 on the loop track at Fleetwood Ferry
The illuminated Trawler was relaunched on Thursday 6th October at a private event for the sponsors of the tram's refurbishment. 737 took the party to Fleetwood where they decamped at the Heritage Tour stop in Bold Street to have lunch at the North Euston Hotel. The Trawler was stabled on the loop line at Fleetwood Ferry while the guests dined out. The following day on the Friday, 737 was launched to the public with two special tours to Fleetwood at 1700 and 2030. Unfortunately gremlins seemed to have got into the wiring since the previous day, and the main LED lighting wasn't working.

  1. Why on earth did they cover the 'red strip' at the bottom of the tram? The strip gave the design a balance. The work the team have done on this is fantastic, but the lighting fitted is very uninspired. Should have done an updated Fisherman's Friend livery with LED lighting around the edges. A real shame :0(

    Please get it 'right' with the Rocket Tram, please! :0) xxx
