With the exception of Brush 290 all these trams are currently 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. This replaces the previous "graffiti art" livery applied in 2013.
Brush 621 was acquired by a group of enthusiasts in November and moved to Beamish where it is eventually to be restored. It has now been removed from this fleet list.
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.
Negotiations are underway for the acquisition of Balloon 726 by a private group but it is likely to remain in Fleetwood for the immediate future. 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.
