5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value DVD 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase
For the price of £10.99 you get a lot for your money.

I had originally seen the bonus video of this DVD on Youtube and was so impressed with the video quality I was determined to buy it.

With a viewing time of 50 minutes on the main feature you see a lot more of the surrounding scenery than you do on the sped up version.
You can see where the tram reversal loops are en route, unusual terminal layouts where trams turn round and Fleetwood town centre, where the tram lines run on the roads. Having watched the DVD, I like all of the feature, but my favourite part is where the tram is travelling along the roads in Fleetwood.

This DVD is definitely one for the transport enthusiast to watch and enjoy. It will make you feel like you're in the driving seat and after watching this you may decide that you want to go and see the new trams for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great dvd 20 April 2014

I bought this as an 80th birthday gift for my cousin who used to lived in Blackpool. It would have created so much more atmosphere if there had been a backing music also if the names of the tram stops had been shown as ex residents do forget and my cousin would really have loved to see the names of all the tram stops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Driver's Eye View 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Having visited the resort a number of times before and after the new "Flexity" trams took over from the old fleet, I decided to get this DVD to get a "new look" at the tramway.
This DVD gives you chance to ride the length of the tramway from Starr Gate to Fleetwood in the cab of one of the new trams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blackpool one sunny morning 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Excellent cab-ride on the new trams all the way from Starr Gate to Fleetwood Pier. If I had any criticism it would be that it would have been nice to have had a minimal soundtrack gioving identity to the various stops and landmarks.
