Heritage cars working from Starr Gate

Due to ongoing roadworks at Manchester Square, and there still being temporary traffic lights in place there, the active heritage fleet has been temporarily based at Starr Gate depot, which is acting as their operating base for the duration of the roadworks near to their usual depot at Rigby Road. A small selection of shots are shown here of heritage trams arriving at and departing from Starr Gate depot on Friday 18th April.
