Blackpool Bits

For something completely different, let's take a look at what's happening in one of Great Yarmouth's competing seaside resorts - Blackpool

Rob Collins spent a few days there in mid-September in typical British summer weather which was not all that conducive to taking good photographs.

The first picture is of one of the newly introduced Bombardier
built Flexity 2 trams nearing the Bispham stop.

This is white and purple liveried 009 which was placed in service in early April this year and is shown heading for Starr Gate

The next photo shows Blackpool Transport East Lancs Lolyne bodied Denis Trident 315 PJ03TFX passing tram No 011

Rob reports that in
addition to the poor weather, buses had to negotiate the many roadworks in the town with them being sent all over the place!

The final view is of  Blackpool Transport's 533 BF60UVS picking up passengers on its route to Lytham Square - it's a Plaxton Centro bodied Volvo B7RE

My thanks to Rob Collins for his photos
