Box 40 leaves for Crich

Blackpool & Fleetwood Box Car 40 departed for a short period of loan to the National Tramway Museum at Crich on the morning of 21st July. After 40's brief return to service during Tram Sunday on 20th July, the tram has been transported to Crich where it is scheduled to take part in the Electric 50 event on the 13th and 14th of September. Scotts Heavy Haulage were tasked with moving Box 40, and after an uneventful loading on Monday morning, the low loader set off from Blundell Street with its precious load at 1135.

  1. Even though this is the wrong topic. When I went to holiday there was just flexi's running and there was no roadworks on Manchester square junction. I hate the way blackpool changed since last. They had the bus lane on central drive and done roadworks and removed some traffic lights.
