Rocket lands at Gynn Square

After a rapid makeover by the Illuminations Dept team, the illuminated Rocket landed during the early hours of Tuesday 14 August on Gynn Square roundabout! The tram has been treated to a complete repaint and external rewire with the advert panels rewired with fluorescent lighting and LED bulb coloured lights. Over the next couple of weeks, the feature will be completed and the Rocket will be amongst one of the most high profile displays for the Centenary of Blackpool's illuminations.
Philip Higgs, Trustee said "Richard Ryan and his team at Blackpool Illuminations have been great to work with and it has been great to see the tram transformed from its years of neglect at the back of Rigby Road tram depot to an eye-catching display for 2012".
