A batch of 20 Brush 'Railcoaches' were delivered in 1937 and numbered 284-303. These 'Railcoaches' were visually similar to earlier batches of trams from English Electric but a closer inspection reveals detailed design differences and electrical components from the Brush company.

The thumbnail picture on the left is of railcoach 287 which is currently undergoing restoration by the Lancastrian Transport Trust. Fortunately in 1971 the tram was assigned to the track gang 'Permanent Way' department and therefore escaped from much modernisation, retaining particularly its original style destination screens and sliding doors. For more information see: www.ltt.org.uk/ourtrams/blackpool_287.html

Car 295 survives today under the guise of 632, but has lost its art-deco appearance by the loss of roof glazing, painted instead of chrome buffers, larger route indicator boxes and illuminated advertising panels perched on the roof. The tram is owned by the Lancastrian Transport Trust, but is used with permission in occasional service by Blackpool Transport, usually on busy Saturdays.
