Gallery 296: Launch of Blackpool Brush 630 at Crich May 2012
On Saturday 12th May 2012, Crich Tramway Village staged a spectacular Brush car themed event, to celebrate the entry into service of one of the Museum's latest acquisitions - Blackpool Brush Railcoach 630. To mark the occasion, the day featured a credible five trams built by the Brush company in service, with others displayed on the depot fan at various times. In addition, volunteers arranged for a mini line-up of Blackpool trams just before 630's inaugural public journey in its new home, whilst the workshop team were kept busy re-organising the main depots which led to a number of unusual vehicles appearing outside. This special photo gallery shows some of the many highlights from this highly enjoyable day.

All photographs in this gallery were taken by Tony & Andrew Waddington, except the first shot which was supplied by Andrew Blood.
