In Pictures: A busy day at Seaton

We’ve recently shown you a few pictures from the Seaton Tramway of a standard early season Saturday which saw three trams in service but just a few days later no fewer than seven trams were in action. The date was Thursday 5th April which included the Seaton Pearl – aimed at all the little Pirates out there! – aka no. 4! Also in action on this day was 2 (running on the car park extension presumably in connection with the construction works), 8, 10, 11, 15 (driver training) and 16 (driver training) – not bad for midweek in April! Photos courtesy of Mike Poole.

Inside the depot where we see 9 and 2.

As 10 waits to depart with the service car, 16 turns its trolley on driver training.

A busy scene at Colyton with 10, 15 and 4.

8 waits for the lights to change at Colyford.

The Seaton Pearl decorated for its use on the pirate specials heads back to Seaton through Colyford with 15 having shunted out of the way into the siding. (All Photographs by Mike Poole)

    Gareth, I’d be interested to know the significance of the letters ‘PE’ that appear in #15′s headlamp.

    I’d guess it’s from the Polar Express event at Christmas.

    • Gareth Prior says:

      Correct! I was just confirming it is indeed Polar Express branding in additional to the side vinyls on 16 they just haven’t been removed!

    Many thanks, Juanjo and Gareth.
