Brief History:

These trams were supposedly bought by a private individual back in 2011. Something happened financially causing a default ownership to be passed onto a tram heritage trust. These trams operated in blackpool between the 1960s- 2000s. Thats all i have on these i'm afraid!


VISIT:

A lovely little treat here from a secret location in Lancashire. You are welcome to take a atmospheric trip with me to explore forgotten decaying vintage blackpool trams from various eras. Many of these trams I have ridden in various times of my life, from a small kid to my now adult size. What a trip down memory lane. A perfect one for the urban explorer, tram spotter or blackpool history fanatic! They are in various conditions, either way, its very sad to see them left to decay.

Enjoy this gritty trek adventure!

Please check out the video on youtube for the full story, and please enjoy the images!

Regarding location, please don't ask as this one is a "kiss and don't tell" for many reasons. Thanks for the understanding.

As usual, I have made a youtube video about the visit which can be seen here:

He was saying kids been jumping over from back and messing up the trams. Also hard too belive but there's even people trying to Rob some of the abandoned caravans here right under security nose .

No issue with the report as such, just we have a separate area now for YouTube videos, I'll add you in so you can share video content there going forward.
