Model trams stolen from Heaton Park

During the model tram show held as part of the annual Trans Lanc Rally at Heaton Park on Sunday 6th September, two model trams were noted missing, believed stolen, from the exhibition at the Middleton Road tram depot.

The models concerned are a resin model of Blackpool Ex-Towing Railcoach 680 in the 1990s green, cream and black livery it has recently regained, and a brass model of Blackpool Pantograph car 167 in its wartime-style green and cream livery, as preserved at Crich. It was noticed that both had gone missing at around 1630 on the event day.

If anyone knows anything about the disappearance of these model trams, sees them or is offered for sale a model which may be one of the above, please contact us and we will inform the event organisers.

    Thanks for mentioning this the more people we tell the better. They are both 4mm scale and being from my running fleet are of course wired for live overhead! So just maybe there’s some small justice and somebody is wondering why they don’t go!

    Sorry to hear about this Alan, I know you put a lot of time and effort into your models. I will keep a lookout for any sign of them.

    Very sad to hear this. I attend many bazaars both with my bus and our group the TTC and we will all keep a look out for said trams.
