Standard 147 back in Heritage Tour service

Newly repainted Standard 147 re-entered Heritage Tram Tour service over the Easter weekend. As already detailed on the Blackpool Heritage Tram Tours website, 147 has had quite a lot of remedial work done to it since it returned from its period of loan at Beamish Museum. The tram now looks resplendent in the 1930s style of the Blackpool Standard green and cream livery, and is ready for many more years of Heritage Tour service.
