A group of Indian women have a day out in Blackpool with various results
This popular comedy is mostly set in Blackpool and there are a number of distant shots of trams, mainly Balloon and Coronation types. However, towards the end of the film there are some much better images of illuminated examples. There is also a very unexpected closeup shot of the 3-car North Pier tram. The 891mm gauge diesel tram was built by Harry Steer Engineering of Breaston in Derbyshire for the inauguration of services in 1991. This was the first entirely new pier tramway in the UK in over 80 years. The tram was withdrawn in 2004 and removed for scrap.
