Streamliners and Centenaries

Brush car 631 departing Pharos Street on the mid-afternoon return trip to the Pleasure Beach from Fleetwood

Saturday 24th August saw the start of the last weekend of daytime Heritage Tour operation of the year in Blackpool. Although the weather had been forecast to be wet for much of the day, fortunately the sun decided to shine on the Fylde Coast instead. The timetabled Heritage Tour output comprised of Centenary cars 648 and 642, with Brush 631 and Boat 230 operating the heritage specials. 648 made the first run of the day to Fleetwood, with 642 operating as far as Cleveleys on its first journey. Brush car 631 performed the early afternoon Fleetwood journey from the Pleasure Beach, with Boat 230 preceding it to Bispham where it took its crew break. The day was rounded off with Centenary 642 and Boat 230 running the late afternoon trip to Fleetwood.
