Some of these trams are due to be displayed at the proposed Fleetwood Tram Museum near to the Fleetwood Ferry terminus of which plans are currently being progressed. With the exception of Brush 290 they are all currently stored with no public access.
Brush 290 remains on display by Pleasure Beach loop. Having spent the 2012 Illuminations there as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tram it was treated to a new paint job during summer 2013 by street artist Inkie. It currently remains in situ at Pleasure Beach but should be removed at some point in the future.
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 Friends of Fleetwood Trams. The two halves are currently stored in different locations.
Plans are being formulated to convert Balloon 726 into an approximation of the "Progress Illuminated Tram" for display at Pleasure Beach for the 2014 Illuminations.
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 will not be considered for a return to service.

British Trams Online is an enthusiast run website for enthusiasts. It should be able to be viewed at all screen resolutions but I do advise you that it is probably best at 1024x768. The site is owned, maintained (and in the main written) by Gareth Prior. Any comments or suggestions please email.
