In 1934 English Electric Company built single deck open-topped trams with central doors and gangway for Blackpool Corporation Transport. The boats were commissioned by Walter Luff in 1933, in accordance with his five-year plan. The prototype arrived in Blackpool during early spring in 1934 and after an initial trial period, company directors approved an order for 11 production cars, which arrived in July and August 1934, numbered 225–236. They were known as 'boats' because of their nautical appearance. They remained in regular service until the closure of the inland routes during 1963. The fleet was reduced to eight and renumbered 600–607. Model represents car 236 as preserved at the National Tramway Museum since 2012.
