Boating in Winter

Standard 147 southbound on a Heritage Tour service at Manchester Square
The second Heritage Tour weekend of the year started on Saturday 27th February. A gold timetabled service was in operation, with heritage trams 40, 147, 230, 715, 717 and 272/T2 opening the days proceedings. This was to be Standard 147's last outing in Heritage Tour service before the tram goes on loan to the Living Museum of the North at Beamish. Boat 230 made a rare winter timetabled journey to Fleetwood, despite the rather cool weather.
