LTT Brush Car 624 leaves Rigby Road

Brush PW car 259 after being loaded onto Allelys low loader in Blundell Street
Lancastrian Transport Trust owned Brush Permanent Way car 259 (formerly 624 in the passenger fleet) left Rigby Road depot this afternoon for secure storage in the Marton area of Blackpool. For the first time in several years Scotts of Derbyshire were not involved in the tram move, the company undertaking the job being Allelys Heavy Haulage from Warwickshire.
