Easter Monday Heritage Tours

Brush Car 631 turning from Hopton Road into Lytham Road to begin its Easter Monday Heritage Tour service
Easter Monday's weather was a repeat of the previous day, with a blanket of sea mist enveloping the Promenade throughout the day. The heritage tram output from Rigby Road was (in order of leaving the depot) Balloon 706 Princess Alice, Standard 147, Brush Car 631, Box Car 40, Bolton 66 and finally Centenary 642. The gold timetable was in force again, with six trams operating the Heritage Tours, including journeys north to Fleetwood at regular intervals during the day.
