060816 Blackpool Standard 159 at Carlton Colville 2

One of the Blackpool standards, 159 was built in Rigby road works as an unvestibuled open-balcony car, becoming the first totally enclosed standard car September 1930. From the early 1950s it ran only as summer extra on the Promenade, and in 1959 it was fitted up as an illuminated car. As well as Illuminations tours, it made the occasionally foray onto the Promenade on busy summer days, until it was withdrawn from service at the end of the 1966 Illuminations. No. 159 arrived at the museum in April 1967, and is now regularly used for carrying visitors
