Boat 607 leaves Blackpool for Crich

Boat 607, which has been restored for the Tramway Museum Society by Blackpool Transport for the princely sum of £95,000, left Blackpool this morning for its new home at Crich. The tram was pulled out of the depot and pushed into Blundell Street by a Unimog, before being pushed and winched onto Scotts low loader, which had remained in Blackpool since last Friday when it moved 143 for the LTT. After the trolley base, pole, lifeguards, windscreens and other spares were loaded, the low loader departed for Crich at 10:30.
