Product Description

To celebrate the introduction of the Flexity trams we have produced a special 36-page souvenir booklet entitled 'Blackpool's Flexity Trams'. Starting with the big launch at Starr Gate depot in September 2011, the booklet covers the delivery of the trams, testing, entry into service and the first two months of operations. It also includes internal shots, cab shots, numerous facts, figures and statistics with a comprehensive list of all the significant dates so far, plus numerous full colour images of the trams in service. Printed to a very high standard on heavy gloss art paper, with a card cover, this special booklet marks the beginning of a new era for the Blackpool Tramway.

This is a small (36pp) booklet which is big in quality.
James Millington has written informative, though not lengthy text and the booklet is packed with high quality photos, all printed on gloss pages.
It's a joy to have, especially for someone like me who has not been able to get to Blackpool since the new trams came into service.

By cairns TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 14 Feb 2014
Format: Paperback
An excellent well produced small book. The background to the reasons for ordering this model, plus the story of delivery is given, together with excellent colour photo's. The infrastructure, particularly the depot is also featured. A very good souvenir. This is 21st century transport in operation, and shows what the right sort of investment can bring. Well done Blackpool. One thing that showed a lack of organisation was the derailment of the publicity inspired pre service run. The driver had to keep stopping to remove debris from the track, and the tram was subsequently derailed. Would it not have been possible for a van and operatives to precede the tram by, for instance, 15 minutes in order to smooth the way and prevent embarrassment?
