Box 40 departs for Beamish

Scotts Heavy Haulage leaving Blundell Street with Box Car 40

Box Car 40 departed from Blackpool today, heading north to spend a few months on the tramway of the Living Museum of the North at Beamish in County Durham. Later in the summer 40 will be moved to its new permanent home at the National Tramway Museum at Crich in Derbyshire. Scotts Heavy Haulage arrived to collect Box 40 on the morning of Monday 4th March, a rather protracted loading process took place with the tram eventually leaving Blundell Street at 1140.
