Blackpool Centenary car

Blackpool Centenary car


Blackpool, United Kingdom (GB)
The centenary cars are single deck trams with flat ends and doors positioned at both the front and centre giving them a more bus-like appearance. They are numbered 641–648 and have a capacity of 52 passengers (of which 16 is standing). They are classed as One Man Operation (OMO) as the position of the doors means that the tram can be solely operated by the driver, as opposed to a team of three. This is useful during low season and early morning/late night services when there is little demand, as it allows the network to keep labour costs down.

They were built by East Lancashire Coachbuilders in 1985, the tramway's centenary year, hence their name.
