Through the considerable generosity of two local companies, Builders Supplies (West Coast) Ltd., and LINKS Signs & Graphics Ltd. The Trust has transformed the appearance of its flagship tram sited on Blackpool's South Promenade.
Following a discussion with Blackpool Council Officers it was determined that responsibility for maintaining and utilising the station would be assigned to the newly created Blackpool Heritage Trust
The Trust are continuing to examine sponsorship which would allow use of Balloon Car 726 as a replica 'Progress Tram' illuminated feature.
We have aquired a remarkable collection of trams representing the Fleetwood tram service since the 1930s
Several of them will occupy pride of place in a tram depot built in 1897 for the early tramroad company on Copse Road, Fleetwood. We are the only transport heritage group in the UK to have its trams displayed in an origianl tram depot from the formative days of electric power. The depot even has original sub station equipment which will form the basis oof an energy exhibit
