Railcoach 279 leaves Rigby Road

Railcoach 279 left Rigby Road tram depot on Wednesday 15th August so that work could resume off-site on the tram, recreating the original English Electric streamlined configuration. 279 was transported the relatively short distance from the depot to the Fylde Transport Trust garage at Brinwell Road in Marton, on the back of a low loader from Reid Freight Services of Stoke-on-Trent.
