The arrival of Birkenhead 20

1900 Milnes built Birkenhead open-top tram 20 arrived in Blackpool on 27th July. The tram had been transported from its home on the Wirral Tramway to Blackpool by Scotts Heavy Haulage, arriving in the resort shortly after Thursday lunchtime. Birkenhead 20 is due to spend a year operating alongside the heritage fleet at Blackpool before returning to the Wirral. During its period of loan it is planned that remedial work will be undertaken on the trams tyres.
