Heritage Tram Depot Open Day

On Sunday 25th August Blackpool Heritage Trams held an open day at their Rigby Road depot. Bolton 66, Jubilee 761, Coronation 341 and Brush 634 were on display on the depot fan, along with several buses. Regular guided tours of the fitting shop, body shop and electrical compound were offered throughout the day for a small extra charge. A nice touch was all the illuminated feature cars being lined up together at the front of the depot, ie the Hovertram, Western Train, Rocket, Trawler and Frigate.
