In Pictures: Sunderland 16 on the move at Beamish

We recently briefly reported on the continued overhaul of Grimsby & Immingham 26 at Beamish whilst also mentioning that work is also taking place on Sunderland 16 with a view to the double decker from the Wear returning to service in the short-term. Since that report 16 has been moved from the side shed (road 1) to the main tram depot and is now situated over the pit on road 3. Sunderland 16 had been taken out of service for attention to its wheels which were returned at the start of September. With autumn soon to become winter the return of 16 is sure to be welcomed by passengers and tram crews alike.
