FTS tour on Twin Set 272+T2

Twin Set T2+272 on the FTS tour, northbound on North Albert Street in Fleetwood
The Fylde Tramway Society ran a tour of the Blackpool Tramway system using heritage Twin Set 272+T2 on Saturday 29th December. The trams were only permitted to stop at designated Heritage Tour tram stops, which limited the places that photo stops could be made. Midway through the tour an hour break was taken at Fleetwood, with the set laying over on the Ferry loop between 13:50 and 14:50. The following photos were all taken while 272+T2 was in Fleetwood mid-afternoon.
