Blackpool 619 Launch and First Day of the Season 2023

Blackpool 619 sat on depot road outside Middleton Road Depot during the 2022 Lightopia event.

Join us on 26th March to formally welcome our latest restoration project, Blackpool 619, back into traffic and celebrate the start of our 2023 season!
This day will feature a two car service, with 619 operating alongside a compatriot from her days at the seaside also living out her retirement at Heaton Park, Blackpool 623.
The precise details of the event, for example, photographic runs, will be released soon.
Thanks to our friends at the Fylde Transport Trust, a vintage Blackpool bus will also be joining us for the event – in addition, this vehicle will be operating in service from Blackpool so enthusiasts can ride and travel in style to our event! Please see their Facebook page soon for more information.
The picture below is of 619 on test in wintery conditions in December 2022 – final finishing touches are being made ready for this event, including advert boards and lining out.
