On 29th February Standard 147 departed Blackpool for the long journey north to the Living Museum of the North at Beamish in County Durham. Blackpool 147 was being exchanged for long term Beamish resident Marton Box Car 31, which arrived in Blackpool two days later in order to take its place in the Heritage Tram Tour line-up for the 2016 season. Standard 147 was one of the four trams in daily use during the Great War Steam Fair event at Beamish, that ran from 7th to 10th April.
