Marton Box 31 at Easter

Marton Box Car 31 heading south at North Pier on its first day in Heritage Tour service
Marton Box Car 31 made its debut in Heritage Tram Tour service in Blackpool on Sunday 27th March over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Marton 31 has been swapped with Blackpool Standard 147 which has gone north to Beamish in County Durham for the season, 31 will be spending the year operating Heritage Tours on the Fylde Coast. The weather was rather unkind for the debut of the open-top tram on Easter Sunday, with the morning being blighted with heavy downpours and hail showers, although later on in the day the weather had picked up considerably, and blue skies were much in evidence during the afternoon.
