Blackpool Totally Transport 2009

Blackpool Totally Transport Show. South Promenade, Blackpool. Sunday 28th June 2009.

Weather started sunny, muggy and very warm, then clouded. Looked ominous when I left and some places inland were flooded by a sudden downpour in mid-afternoon. Don't know what happened on the promenade.

Here are my photos seemed a good turn-out. Everything buses, lorries, trams, cars, donkeys, fairground rides and a dog. Along with singers and loads of stands selling transport related stuff in the Solarium. Plenty of smoke from a burger barbie, thought a train had turned up as well.

I'll get down to writing up about the photos later.

I get letters saying why these things that are not in Preston. They aren't so far away and there are Leyland built buses and Preston built trams.
