With the exception of Brush 290 all these trams are currently stored with no public access. Of the remaining trams all except Jubilee 761 are stored in Fleetwood.
Brush 290 has been repainted in an approximation of its former half green/half cream livery complete with window decorations illustrating the history of the Blackpool & Fleetwood Tramroad ahead of the 2014 illuminations, but remains displayed near the Pleasure Beach heritage tram stop. The tram is due to be removed for storage at Rigby Road during 2015 and replaced by Centenary 641.
Brush 625, Brush 637, Twin Trailer 681 and Twin Trailer 687 are stored with the Trust's trams in Fleetwood but are not currently owned by them. It is planned that 681 will join the FHLT's collection for use as a store with 687 being coverted into third party use. 637 will be dismantled for spares.
Centenary 641 is to be the centrepiece of the Trust's 2015 Illuminations display at Pleasure Beach loop. Work has started on the tram on the application of a Blackpool FC celebration livery.
Centenary 643 was moved into the ownership of the Fleetwood Heritage Leisure Trust in February 2014 following its disposal from a caravan park where it had been in use as a cafe. It is currently stored in Fleetwood.
Twin Car 673+683 remain in private ownership and are on loan to the Fleetwood Heritage Leisure Trust.
Balloon 726 remains in Fleetwood and is being restored by a private individual. Jubilee 761 was moved to Blackpool Transport's Rigby Road Depot on 11th December for ongoing storage. It remains part of the FHLT collection and talks have begun to returning the tram to service as part of the Blackpool heritage fleet in the future.
