Perpetual Motion – S01E02 – The Blackpool Tram (9th January 1992) [VHSRip (XviD)]
A collection of transport from days gone by. BBC2's endearing series about vehicles which have refused to die.
Episode 2 – The Blackpool Tram
A pogramme on the history of the Blackpool Tram. Amongst which the famous ones built in the nineteen thirties by Walter Luff.
Sixty years later at the time of filming this documentary the “balloon” double deckers were still running as they are today.
I am not a tram-or bus-fanatic myself, but some of you probably are. Found the following comment by Malcolm Rennie on [url]www.busesonscreen.net[/url]:
"There are colour views, both inside and out, of Glasgow's tram replacement buses, Alexander bodied Leyland Titans, with extended footage of L25 (FYS648).
Also Ribble 545 (D545RCN), a Mercedes L608D with Reeve Burgess body showing destination 'F1 Fleetwood Circular' overtakes a single deck Blackpool tram in Fleetwood.
There is black and white footage of London trams both in service and on fire in the scrap yard."
