Heaton Park Tramway closed on 7th October

The Heaton Park Tramway in Manchester will not be operating this weekend, due to the annual Bus & Tram Show being held at Birkenhead on Sunday 7th October. Several of the regular volunteers in Manchester will be supporting this event in order to provide an intensive four-tram service, which would leave insufficient staff to run trams at Heaton Park.

As most enthusiasts in this part of the country are likely to be visiting Birkenhead anyway, this seems a sensible move and it is also most pleasing to see one tramway helping another in this manner. The Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society have stated that this year’s Bus & Tram Show could be the last ever, as the future of the Birkenhead tramway remains uncertain, and so hopefully the event will be well supported.
