I am most disappointed to hear that the Blackpool to Fleetwood Tramway will be closed until 2012 for modernisation. Apart from track renewal they are going to replace most of the vintage trams, some dating back to the 1930's with new Bombardier single deckers. There are plans to keep some (number not specified) of the vintage trams for the Blackpool only section which probably means Pleasure Beach to Gynn Square. I always loved travelling on the old English Electric "Balloon" cars on the Fleetwood section and its a sad day that this will be no more. The tramway is a major tourist attraction and the only electric tramway using vintage rolling stock, turning it into a modern light rail (as they love to call it these days) system is the wrong way to go. I just hope all the displaced trams find good homes.
