FTS Heritage Weekend Day Two

Boat 230 passing St Peter's Church at the end of Lord St in Fleetwood, as Flexity 013 heads south towards Starr Gate

Monday 5th May saw the second of the two days of Fylde Tramway Society sponsored Heritage Tour operation in Blackpool, being funded as part of their 2014 Convention Weekend. Monday saw the morning heritage run to Fleetwood handled by Boats 230 and 600. Open-top Balloon 706 and Standard 147 entered Heritage Tour service later, these two trams then operated the late afternoon run through to Fleetwood Ferry and return.
