  • Route : Blackpool Tramway : TheTrams.co.uk
    Road to the depot in Rigby Road Depot spur and the Foxhall line Trams from the north reach the depot via a double track spur along Lytham Road which turns into Hopton Street There is no connection from the south In Hopton Street the line becomes single track and then fans out into several tracks at the depot throat There is a second way for trams to reach the depot which is the Foxhall route a single track heads out of the depot in the opposite direction to the Lytham Road route along Blundall Street and then Princess Street and connects with the main line on the Promenade at Foxhall Square This line which is the oldest electrified street tramway in the world is rarely used The most recent regular usage was January April 2005 when the Lytham Road line was shut for track renewal Manchester Square North Pier North of Manchester Square trams continue along the Promenade to North Pier Along the way the tramway serves seafront attractions such as the Aquarium Louis Tussaud s Waxworks Central and North Piers and the most famous of them all Blackpool Tower At North Pier stop there are three tracks to facilitate short workings at the busiest times in the holiday season North Pier Gynn Square After North Pier the tram tracks briefly join the road before rejoining the paved reserved right of way at the side of the road Trams run along this reservation following Blackpool s North Shore between the Promenade and the seafront to Gynn Square tram stop Gynn Square Cleveleys North from Gynn Square the tramway once again follows the North Shore After Cabin the paved track gives way to a ballasted reserved right of way broken only by a short sections of paved track at Bispham and Little Bispham stops The tram stop at Bispham has three tracks and there is a substantial shelter building on the north bound side Little Bispham also has a shelter building although a smaller one and north of this stop there is a single track reversing loop After Little Bispham the line curves slightly inland from the coast although the sea is never far away On the approach to Cleveleys the line crosses the northbound carriageway of the A587 at a traffic light controlled junction to adopt a position in the central reservation The line at this point is on ballasted track except for the stop at Cleveleys which is on paved track Cleveleys Ash Street After the tram stop at Cleveleys the line crosses over the southbound carriageway of the A587 to a ballasted alignment at the side of the road Unlike the tramway south of Little Bispham where there are very few crossings there is nowhere to go to other than the sea the section of reserved track north of Cleveleys crosses a number of minor roads at unprotected crossings At Thornton Gate there is a set of Permanent Way sidings which are no longer in use After Rossall
