Blog- The Grime Street Blog - Blackpool Coronation tram.

Recommended Posts

A brief interlude from layout and Leeds trams.


I had a new version FUD print of a Blackpool Coronation handy and decided to do something with it.


This was an original form with roof windows and I decided I wanted a 60s version with roof advert boxes etc....


So fill roof windows paint in appropriate colours after adding Mark Hughes etched detail to make it into car 659 (The first one converted to conventional control with Z4 controllers)


Add roof boxes and Mark Hughes etched tower painted a fetching shade of orange....


I think this'll be destined for climates new.... I don't have a hankering for a Blackpool layout....


Anyway a few pics of current state of play.
