2015 Wirral Bus & Tram Show

Sunday 4th October saw the annual Wirral Bus & Tram Show taking place, based around the Wirral Heritage Tramway in Birkenhead. The event was blessed with sunshine for much of the day, with the highlight being Liverpool Baby Grand tram 245 making its debut at the annual show. Liverpool 245 had only had its public service launch three weeks before the event, and the tram was unsurprisingly extremely popular, running with heavy passenger loadings throughout the day.
