Rawtenstall 23 is stored in various locations within Heaton Park.
Oldham 43 was built as an uncanopied open top double-decker, but was rebuilt as an enclosed single decker in 1933. It is likely that an eventual major restoration will see the car returned to its final post 1933 condition. The tram body was moved to Heaton Park on 17th June 2014 and is now stored in Lakeside Depot awaiting its turn for restoration.
Manchester L53 is a unique Eades reversible horse tram. Usually on loan at the Bury Transport Museum (part of the East Lancashire Railway) it is currently on display at the Greater Manchester Museum of Transport.
Manchester 173 arrived at Heaton Park on 17th December 2013 and is stored awaiting workshop space to return it to operational condition.
Blackpool 680 is on loan to the Blackpool Tramway. Although owned by the Manchester Transport Museum Society the tram has only run at Heaton Park for four months in 2015 between loan spells in Beamish and Blackpool.
708 has been sold for use as a Playtram at the Trolleybus Museum at Sandftoft. It has now been removed from the above fleet list.
Manchester Metrolink 1007 was officially presented to the Manchester Transport Museum Society on 26th May 2014 during the "T68 Farewell tour", becoming the first second generation tram to be preserved. It remains stored at Metrolink's Trafford Depot ahead of an eventual move to Heaton Park.
The Manchester horse bus was kindly gifted to the tramway by Beamish Living Museum and is currently in store awaiting restoration, living on Rawtenstall 23's truck.
