Blackpool Totally Transport Show. South Promenade, Blackpool. Sunday 23rd June 2013. Weather was windy with showers.
A good turn out of both vehicles and public. Classic buses, coaches, cars and very large turn out of Mini's.
This year a Heritage Tram Service was operating between North Pier and the Pleasure Beach which added interest.. The Solaris had loads of stands and entertainers and some great model trams.
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.
Leyland built buses run by Lytham and Blackpool Corporations in their day but now owned by Lancastrian Transport Trust.
