The first line-up of the day "The Double Deck Fleet" took place around 11:00, and consisted of Standards 40 and 49, Balloon 711 and Jubilee 762. "The Tramroad Fleet" was the second line-up, which was assembled shortly after 13:00, and comprised of Blackpool & Fleetwood Rack 2 and Box 40, Pantograph 167 and Brush Car 630. The last line-up "The Seaside Fleet" gathered at 14:15, and contained Blackpool & Fleetwood Rack 2, Toastrack 166 and Luxury Toastrack 236. During all these photo calls Standard 49 remained on the depot fan, and could be included in the group shots with the other trams that were being assembled at various times throughout the day.
