||I paid a visit to Blackpool for an open day at the Rigby Road tram depot and bus garage, where I had a very interesting tour of the works.|
|The tour included one of the substations which supplies the tram system. They've kept one panel of the disused old equipment for comparison.|
||There were plenty of buses and trams to look at. The newly refurbished "HMS Blackpool" shown on the left went on her first run the day before.|
I ended my visit with a tram ride along the tracks linking the depot with the front, not usually available to passengers.
