Totally Transport trams moved to Starr Gate

Brush Car 631 turning onto Lytham Road on its way down to the Promenade junction at Manchester Square
Due to the traffic light work at Manchester Square still not being finished yet, several heritage trams were moved from Rigby Road depot down to Starr Gate on 20th June, in order to be in position for the Heritage Tour operations planned for the Totally Transport event on Sunday June 22nd. Five trams left Rigby Road depot shortly after 11:00 am, these being 600, 631, 717, 66 & 167. Once the five trams had been safely transferred to Starr Gate, the Western Train was moved north from Starr Gate depot back to Rigby Road, as it will not be required for the event.
