Brush 621 from Starr Gate to Fleetwood Ferry

621 approaching the terminus at Starr Gate on Saturday 24th February
The Winter Gold weekend on 24th & 25th February saw heritage trams operating a regular timetabled service from Starr Gate to Fleetwood Ferry. Saturday 24th saw Brush Car 621 in all day service, and as most of the day was blessed with unbroken sunshine, this gave many people their first chance to photograph 621 in all its glory for the first time. On the Sunday 621 was due to remain in Rigby Road depot, but around lunchtime Railcoach 680 was taken out of service and replaced by Brush 621 on the 'C' timetable, just in time for the tram to make its second run of the weekend to Fleetwood, again in full sunshine. This selection of photos combines shots taken over both days, showcasing 621 at both Starr Gate and Fleetwood plus several points in between.
