The Good Ship Tramcar


As well as the static lights illuminated tramcars travel the length of the lights. There are a couple of ships and a Western train. I remember a spaceship as well but have not seen it in recent years, maybe it has succumbed to the Sirens of yesterday.

Ah yes, the nights are drawing in. Must be close to the time of year when we were all herded onto the charabanc from Salford to go and see the lights. I remember being gobsmacked at all the colour - so different to life at that time. Of course back in the day it would have been Freddy and the Dreamers, not Freddy and the Drifters ;o)
Les Auld: The October outing, beer crates on the back seat, fizzy pop for the kids and stop at the half way house for a quick pint. Those days are long gone I suspect Mike.

Les Auld: Quite an idea eh Vintage, thanks for the comment.
I'd heard that they have some decorated trams, this is great stuff.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian smile
A brilliat image Les.I have yet to visit Blackpool at night and only ever past through once. A sight to see. Great stuff.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, worth making the effort some time as there are plenty of photo opportunities, thanks for the comment.
I never knew they did this to the trams, great shot to show us.
Les Auld: They do look quite good as they trundle up and down the front Linda, thanks for the comment.

An impressive sight, Les, and a fine capture. Am I right in thinking that the tram stays like this all year and is only used for the Illuminations?
Les Auld: I do believe it is the case Alan, I think it would actually be quite difficult to convert the ordinary trams each year. Thanks for the comment.
Such a funny tram car :-D
Les Auld: It quite good isn't it, thanks for the comment.
