The Fleetwood Heritage Leisure Trust had been given notice that the remaining trams that they had stored at Kirkham Prison in Lancashire needed to be removed from the premises. Beginning on Monday 10th November the trams began to be transported away to other storage facilities. Twin Set motor car 673 and Centenary 641 were both moved to the groups open compound within the private port complex at Fleetwood Fish Dock. The two trams would then be reunited with the other FHLT trams, Balloons 710 & 726, Railcoach 678, Twin Set trailer 683 and Centenary 643.
