Transfers & Decals etc.
Over the years Blackpool Transport hired out their fleet as large travelling billboards, running various advertisements for local and national businesses. Some of these achieved almost cult status and now, for the first time, East Lancs Model Tramway supplies are able to offer several of these for sale, each one faithfully recreated from the original Blackpool Transport Martketing Dept. designs.
It is not possible to show our full range on the website, so listed below are our most popular items.
Please see our 2016 Catalogue for the full list of what we stock.
