On the morning of Friday 2nd May 706 Princess Alice and Twin Set 272+T2 were moved from Rigby Road depot down to Starr Gate in preparation for the upcoming FTS heritage weekend. During the move Centenary Car 648 and Brush Car 631 were also moved around and repositioned within the depot. Here are a few photos of some of the heritage trams being shunted within the depot perimeter at Starr Gate.
