Trams

Blackpool Tram 631 is one of the Brush-built pseudo-Railcoaches, from 1937. She was numbered 294 when she entered service, but renumbered with the rest of the trams in 1968.
These trams were made to look like the Railcoaches, but with every dimension slightly different in order to avoid allegations of breach of copyright. The single blind replaced the twin ones in February 1974. She is one of several of the class fitted with rooftop advertising boxes, but please beware of the purple rhinos and note that the green allidile (or is it a crocogator?) is not attached to the tram. She's passing the Pleasure Beach the way to Starr Gate in September 1975. The raised structure is the track for the monorail.
