Scenes recorded during a visit to Blackpool and Fleetwood on Sunday 15th July 2012, of various bits and pieces of action on the tramway. Several of the new 'Flexity' trams are mostly seen, but 'heritage' cars Brush 631 and Box 40 also make appearances whilst in operation during the weekend 'heritage' service (Brush 631 being a substitute for a failed 'boat' 230).
Locations are North Pier, Little Bispham, Pleasure Beach and all other places in between.
We also head to Fleetwood for the 2012 Tram Sunday event (which very luckily was blessed with fairly decent weather, in a contrast to the scenes recorded 12 months ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig_guwWNlbA Blackpool Tramway Action (17th July 2011)), where to the strains of 'Rule Britannia', we get a look at the recently repainted 'Wide-door' Balloon 700 and 'heritage Balloon' 717 on display at Fleetwood Ferry.
