Description

Summer 2016: Footage from the three main Heritage tram running weekends during the summer, starting in June with the Starr Gate weekend. This annual two-day service was blessed with fine weather on the Saturday and saw the likes of 31, 227, 230 and 600 in action. 675+685 unusually took its crew break on the loop at Starr Gate. On the Sunday, the weather turned, 272+T2 failed and had to be towed to RR depot. The Tram Sunday weekend kicked off on the Friday with the relaunch of 718 in all over white livery. The tram ran to Fleetwood and used the crossover at Tower. On Tram Sunday itself, 40, 700 and 680 were stabled at Pharos Street with the likes of 227, 230 and 272+T2 running to Fisherman's Walk. The use of Balloon 713 was a highlight. A five day August Bank Holiday weekend tram extravaganza started on the Friday with 733+734 and F736 to Fleetwood; Saturday, Sunday and Monday all saw the six-car gold service in operation. Every tram that ran is featured here including 700 on specials and 718. On an eventful Tuesday evening, 733+734 and F736 ran pre-Illuminations Tours of Illuminations! (approx 60 minutes)
