http://www.britishtramsonline.co.uk/oct11/newsblackpool3.html http://ltt-news.blogspot.com/ Here we go After the widespread relief that most of Blackpool's historic tramcars had been saved from a tragic scrapping at the hands of an unsentimental Blackpool Transport, we now have the inevitable news coming through that actually it's not all quite so rosy. Now that the 'old' cars have graced the system for the last time proper, we hear that BT are in no mood for extending these unwelcome former workhorses any sympathy, and they want their Rigby Road depot emptied asap, (such is their pressing need to apparently fill it up with buses which currently have a very large parking area elsewhere on the site, as they have done for years). Several owners of various tramcars have struggled to find storage for them in time for the pre-set deadline of the end of the year, and things now look a bit tricky. The Lancastrian Transport Trust are the worst affected and say their various proposals for some form of museum within the town have been shunned by the council (who own BT), as have their requests to house their important collection at the Rigby Road premises. How very sad. How many of these cars will soon end up sat rotting in a field somewhere?
