Coronation 304 was chartered for a private hire on Monday 3rd November to celebrate the 65th Birthdays of Alan Kirkman and Harold Hull. 304 picked up the birthday guests in Hopton Road outside Rigby Road tram depot, before proceeding to North Pier to collect more passengers. The tram then ran north to Little Bispham turning circle before heading back south to the Pleasure Beach, where a short photo break was taken. After departing the Pleasure beach, 304 ran all the way to Fleetwood Ferry, with a short photo call at the Cabin. On departing Fleetwood, Coronation 304 headed south to Bispham where a crew break was taken. After the break at Bispham the party headed back to the Pleasure Beach and north again to Little Bispham. Lastly a round trip to Starr Gate and back was made through the Illuminations, before the tram finally headed south to North Pier to drop off its passengers, then back in to Rigby Road depot.
