Frontliner proposal could be enhanced

THE splendid Frontliner proposal for Bognor’s seafront could be enhanced by inclusion of traditional tram track in the road and the operation of heritage trams.

These have been an immense success on Blackpool’s seafront for more than a century and will soon run with modern ones as well.

Crich Tramway Village is in a remote part of Derbyshire, but attracts around 0.3m visitors annually.

Many vintage trams have been restored, but nowhere to run and a new surface-mounted track has been designed.

Thus the stage is set for Bognor Regis to draw the visitors with a Southern Historic Tramway.

As publisher of the Middleton Tramway Classic series of albums, I have all the data to hand.
