2016 Wirral Bus & Tram Show

The annual Wirral Bus & Tram Show took place on Sunday 2nd October. During the morning there were only two trams in operation, these being Hong Kong built cars 69 and 70, after midday a four car tram service was provided, with open-top Birkenhead 20 and Liverpool Baby Grand 245 joining the two Hong Trams for the rest of the day. As usual the main participants of the event were static displays of preserved buses, with a further selection of buses offering demonstration rides to visitors. The day was blessed with glorious sunshine, and as usual the event was a credit to the organisors, volunteers and visiting vehicle owners.
