The following trams were out on the heritage service during the week:

  • Sunday 2nd July: Balloon 715 and Balloon 717
  • Monday 3rd July: Balloon 717 and Ex Towing Railcoach 680
  • Tuesday 4th July: Balloon 717 and Balloon 723

  • Thursday 6th July: Bolton 66 and Boat 600
  • Friday 7th July: Bolton 66 and Balloon 715
  • Saturday 8th July: Boat 600 and Balloon 717

6 different trams were used on the service during the week, 66 was out twice, 600 was out 3 times as was 715.   717 was out 4 times and 723 and 680 were out only once during the week.

Balloon 717 also worked a Private Hire from the North Pier heritage siding to the Savoy Hotel  near Gynn Square via Little Bispham loop on Friday 7th, while Fleetwood Box Car 40 was out on a tour from Pleasure Beach on Saturday 8th, unfortunately I was already on my way home by this point so didnt manage to get a photograph.

Of interest at Rigby Road, Brush Car 625 and Standard 143 were stabled at the front of the depot as was newly repainted Millennium Balloon 718, while Brush Car 623 was visible in the Electrical Compound.
