20 Photos of... Trams at Beamish

This is another "20 Photos of..." collection and this time we head to the northeast of England to take a look at trams in operation at Beamish: The Living Museum of the North. For several years from the early 2010s Beamish was at the forefront of the return of tram loans with several trams making visits (some brief, some longer) to run on the circular tram route and many of those visitors are included in this collection. But its not all about visitors as we also include the resident fleet - with three of those having had two identities in recent years.

In total 17 different trams are included in this collection: Birkenhead 20, Blackpool 11, Blackpool 31/4, Blackpool 147, Blackpool 167, Blackpool 233, Blackpool 280, Blackpool & Fleetwood 40, Gateshead 10/Grimsby & Immingham 26, Glasgow 1068, Leeds 6, Lisbon 730, Manchester 765, Newcastle 114, Oporto 196, Sheffield 264 and Sunderland 16.
