Chairman’s Letter This lovely town of Fleetwood has the most stunning views across Morecambe Bay and in its day, was the only place in the world to have three lighthouses. Two of these are on land and one is out at sea. So, if it is vintage vehicles that you like then this is the place for you; if you like shopping then this is the place for you and if you like ‘the arts’ then this is the place for you. Robert Brown Chairman

Well, here we are again 32 years on from the first Tram Sunday which was held in 1985 and how we have evolved! Back then it was all about transport but now with the introduction of ‘the arts’ we have moved the event on to a different level.

Are you able to help as a volunteer for 2018? If so, then contact us at

A huge thank you to everyone who makes the festival possible including the committee, directors, volunteers, sponsors and artists.

Run entirely by volunteers, the town of Fleetwood is very lucky to have a group of people willing to give up their spare time to host such a prestigious event. The Planning Team would like you to go away with nothing but happy memories and ask that you ‘like’ us on Facebook, Twitter etc.

Tram Sunday future dates are: 15th July 2018 21st July 2019 19th July 2020

Tram Exhibits Synonymous with Fleetwood Festival of Transport ‘Tram Sunday’ is the Blackpool to Fleetwood Tramway and its fleet of heritage trams. This year the festival welcomes three beautifully restored heritage trams which you can find at the Pharos Lighthouse and learn about their history here. FLEETWOOD ‘BOX’ 40 Box Car 40 was built in 1914 by the United Electric Car Co. of Preston for the Blackpool & Fleetwood Tramroad. The Tramroad Company operated a separate route from Blackpool North Station to Fleetwood from 1898 to 1919 and amassed a fleet of 41 cars; 15 enclosed ‘box’ saloons for year-round use and 26 open-sided cars for summer work. 40 was one of the last four box cars – the original eleven dated from 1898/9.


WHEN THE TRAMROAD COMPANY was taken over by the Blackpool Corporation in 1920, ‘Box’ 40 was renumbered 114 in the Blackpool series and continued to operate its existing route. The box cars later appeared on the Promenade and Lytham Road services when newer cars took over Fleetwood trips. Following the modernisation of the fleet 114 was withdrawn from service in 1937 but restored for the 75th anniversary of the tramway and operated once again from 1960 to 1963 when it moved to the National Tramway Museum in Crich. Eventually, the restored ‘Box’ 40 returned to Blackpool on long term loan in 1995 and has been an active member of the heritage fleet ever since. BALLOON 711 With the advent in 2012 of the new upgraded tramway with its brandnew fleet of 16 Bombardier “Flexity 2” type tramcars, it was felt that from time to time when demand grew, such as at half term or during the famous Illuminations, that the Flexity fleet might not always be able to cope. Therefore, a programme of rebuilding some of the spare 1930s Balloons was commenced. In total, some nine cars were earmarked for conversion which mainly involved fitting a different type of “plug fit” doors, to enable


them to pick up passengers at the newly constructed LRV style platforms on the upgraded system. Despite their conversion however, the changes, while quite dramatic looking, are in fact, very easily removed and so if in future it is deemed desirable to restore any of the three numbered above, then this should not pose too much of a challenge. That said, with the plug doors, fitting of a pantograph and new striking livery that mimics the Flexity corporate style, the trams do despite their 80 years age quite well, it has been said.


FISHERMAN’S FRIEND ILLUMINATED TRAWLER The Fisherman’s Friend Trawler that we know today can be traced back almost 80 years. Starting out life at number 296, built by the Brush Electric Engineering Company in Loughborough in 1937, it was initially a standard tram used on Lytham Road, Promenade and Fleetwood services up until 1940 when they


moved to the Blackpool North Station to Fleetwood route and then back to the Star Gate to Fleetwood route from 1963. Renumbered in 1968 as 633, the tram went on to make history when it became the world’s first Post Office tram in 1982 having a repaint into Royal Mail red and being fitted with a counter selling stamps and its own post box. Fast forward to September 2001 and it was relaunched with a special run to Fleetwood to meet the Lofthouse family and invited guests waiting for their new illuminated trawler tram. It went on to be an integral part of the autumn illuminations being out on display every night. In 2008, it was renumbered to 737 to be in sequence with the other illuminated trams and then in 2015 was restored thanks to a donation from the Lofthouse family and the hard work of the Blackpool Illuminations team who fitted around 24,500 low voltage LEDs to the tram. The refreshed Fisherman’s Friend Trawler is now without a doubt the brightest star of the illumination fleet.

Steam Exhibits at Tram Sunday This year the Festival is delighted to have three steam exhibits on display for visitors to marvel at. The Shand Mason C is a brilliant example of a steam pump while the 272 Locomotive is a beautifully restored engine. We’re also thrilled to have the Whitfield Light Railway located in Warrenhurst Road offering free rides for all to enjoy. 272 LOCOMOTIVE LOCATION: NORTH EUSTON HOTEL No 272, was built in 1894 and was the 14th loco built by Grant Ritchie of Kilmarnock and is the manufacturer’s sole surviving 0-4-0 saddle tank. There is a 1914 built 0-4-2ST preserved at the Prestongrange Mining Museum in Scotland. No 272 was delivered new to Kinglassie Colliery Leslie in Fife and carried the running number 21. Then little appears to be known about it for a long period of time until it went to Cowdenbeath Central Workshops in 1949 and on to Mary Colliery Fife in 1951, back to Cowdenbeath in 1955, to Fordell Colliery in 1957, Rothes Colliery in 1966 and finally to Thomas Muir’s famous scrapyard in Easterbalbeggie on 25th November 1969. Here it was to be joined over the


years by a further ten Industrial steam locos, ironically including No 6 Andrew Barclay No 2261, which was also restored at Preston. No 272, left Scotland for the first time, when it moved into store near Shrewsbury. The loco then arrived at Riversway on 22nd July 2004 for long term restoration which was fully completed last year.

Steam Attractions SHAND MASON C – HISTORICAL FIRE ENGINE LOCATION: ALBERT SQUARE This Shand Mason single cyclinder was one of three purchased from London Fire Brigade in 1916 by the Posnett Family who owned the Highfield Tannery, Runcorn. It was then donated to Runcorn Town Council.


Enjoy a FREE train ride on this 10.25” gauge portable miniature steam railway, with 60m / 200’ of track. A trainset on a trailer available for events, open days, galas, fairs, fetes, and parties bringing the joy and pleasure of steam to children of all ages.

It was inherited by Cheshire County Fire Brigade some years later and was renovated during the winter of 1995-1996 by Mr Bill Davies of Wrexham. It is shown at many rallies in Britain and Europe by the kind permission of the Chief Officer of Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The usual steam for the railway is in the form of a vertical-boilered 0-4-0 steam tram, using a 1906 Locomobile steam car engine, with a boiler built by ColebySimkins in the 1990’s. The company operates out of Cheshire and is a member of BGLR - Britain’s Great Little Railways.

It is believed to be oldest original Shand Mason single anywhere in the world still in full working condition.

Welcome THIS YEAR SPAREPARTS IS ON THE MOVE. Fleetwood Festival of Transport were successful in getting an Arts Council England strategic touring grant to take this Fleetwood born festival to two other transport festivals in Sandbach and Crewe. Now we are proud to be bringing SpareParts home to Fleetwood. Not only have we expanded to other spaces but this year we have travelled to space. ‘Future Journey’s’ was the theme that all artists and communities responded to this year. We have set in motion many fantastic arts projects across the communities in Fleetwood, from creating a mobility scooter armada with residents of Welbeck House (watch out for them in the parade) to creating Giant Space Puppets with local youth.’. This is also the second year that Maureen Blair has curated some of the best local musicians on the music stage on outside the Post Office so make sure you make a stop there to hear some transport inspired tunes.

‘Soundavan’ in Memorial Park and at Euston Gardens. The Fleetwood Festival of Transport team are an incredible bunch to work with and have really helped to ensure that the spirit of Fleetwood has remained as the festival had its outings in Sandbach and Crewe. We are also grateful this year for all the sponsorship, support and new partnerships that have ensured we are able to showcase the best of Fleetwood and beyond at this year’s festival. So, immerse yourself in the ‘Future Journeys’, whether at the ‘Junk Yard’ in Memorial Park, with the younger travellers in ‘Euston Gardens’, at surprise locations throughout the footprint of the festival or in our newest performance location in Fleetwood Market. Get ready for lift off, enjoy the ride and enjoy SpareParts and Tram Sunday 2017.

This year we have gone galactic with a SpareParts QUEST, which will see young people across the town using their arts maps to help them find the clues in the art and help save the world. The Quest maps are being given out at the


Great SpareParts Parade and Junkyard CRASH Finale THE GREAT SPAREPARTS PARADE Starting at 3pm at the North Euston Hotel and snaking its way down Lord Street and Warrenhurst Road until it arrives at Memorial Park, the Great SpareParts Parade will astound and amaze.

The JunkYard Crash & Little Scrappers.Closing the Festival and closing the 2017 strategic tour, the JunkYard Crash will be performing space and transport inspired pop-rock classics with a twist, ensuring a closing party that will go out with a CRASH.

SPACE CYCLE SAFARI WORKSHOP BY TMESIS THEATRE’S ELI RANDAL Bring you bicycle and join us to create a gigantic flashmob for the Great SpareParts Parade at 3pm. No previous experience necessary, just turn up with your bike and bags of enthusiasm. Help us create Fleetwood’s first Space Cycle Safari. Location: The Market Times: 10am-12pm


Live Music Stage Once again the Festival will feature a live music stage outside the Post Office building near Ash Street. The stage has been organised by local Maureen Blair and will feature performances throughout the day from 10.30am right up until 4.30pm. On the bill are Molly’s Chamber, Bosh Claret, Cartoon Food and Anthony Holden, plus many more, all providing a great soundtrack to the day. This year’s live music stage is dedicated to the memory of Keelan Groves, “Fleetwood’s Drummer Boy”, who recently passed away.


Arts Award Quest Luna, Cosmo and Nova are time travellers from a rebel force gang called ‘Voltage Resistance’, who have travelled here in something that looks like a caravan and uses sound and music to travel. Our intrepid adventurers are here to collect as much evidence of art as possible so that it can be secured for the future. They need your help. This is your QUEST get as much information as you can. Watch out for the nasty Zorgons who will try and steal your maps! The SpareParts Space Quest gives children and young people the opportunity to complete their Arts Award. This is a range of unique qualifications that support anyone up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring young people to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking on arts related challenges.

Maps are available at Euston Gardens and the S oundava n Memoria l Park

SpareParticipation This year, we have been able to grow the participation programme and engage with even more young people, groups and communities in the lead up to the festival. We’re delighted that many more schools have opened their doors to us and our futuristic Voltage Resistance crew who have been spreading the word about how bleak the world could be without arts and asking young people to help them find evidence today via the Arts Award (find out more on the Arts Award page.) Last year, we got so much brilliant feedback from the mobility scooter project, which was the brainchild of Dave at Mobility 2000, we just had to open it out to a larger group of scooter owners. This year, you’ll see a fleet of these beautifully decorated vehicles in the parade - the designs have, once again been inspired by local stories of the past and interpreted by the children who listened to these tales and then developed by artists at Festive Rd. Proving that there are no barriers to taking part in SpareParts! We’ve been able to link up people of all ages with the bicycle ballet, the little scrappers and the BMX plus some emerging performers with the Parkour crew Urban Playground. We hope this will lead to people thinking about their chosen pastime maybe a little bit differently and seeing the potential for linking up with creativity. Local dance crew FY Wingz have linked up their young people with the Blue Light Zone and listened to their tales from the frontline and created a specially inspired dance piece that will be performing throughout the day as part of the festival; this has provided a great opportunity for these young artists to respond to different source material through movement. We’ve had great fun going out and about, meeting Fleetwood residents and finding out more about what they’d like for the future of the festival, we’ve tried to connect as many local groups with artists who are visiting as possible and each year it feels more and more like the brilliant creativity of Fleetwood folk is bursting out in all kinds of ways. If you have any ideas for activities that we can support with for next year, or you’d like to talk about how we could help you realise a vision you have for your group, of any age, then please do get in touch with Melanie on
