LTT Trams in Storage

The six LTT trams in open storage at Marton, seen a week ago shortly after being moved to the yard
The recent removal of the LTT's collection of trams from Rigby Road depot saw them moved into an open storage yard on the site of the former Duple coach factory at Burton Road in Marton. When the trams first moved to Marton there were only a small number of other vehicles stored on the site, however the last week has seen a fleet of vehicles from Gerry Cottle's Circus arrive, after their 2012 comeback tour to celebrate 50 years in the business. It is to be hoped that the influx of vehicles in the yard doesn't impede access for low loaders which will be needed to move the trams at some point in the future, especially Coronation 304's imminent departure to Beamish.
