In Pictures: Manchester 765 gets ready for the off from Beamish

In a little over a week Manchester 765 will be back in its home city at the Heaton Park Tramway getting ready for Tramtastic 2019 when it will return to action in Manchester but its not yet done with its temporary home at Beamish. It is scheduled to be allocated to service on both Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June during the Old King Coal event – with Blackpool & Fleetwood Box 40 also due to run – with these expected to be its last public runs before transportation back across to Manchester. It was also allocated to service on Thursday 27th June with the sun putting a much welcome appearance which led to open toppers Blackpool 31 and Newcastle 114 also running.

Manchester 765 and Newcastle 114 pass at the Entrance. 765 was running anti-clockwise with 114 on the clockwise circuit.

765 is left alone at the Entrance.

It’s midweek in June but still Newcastle 114 has a full load of passengers as it approaches the clockwise stop in the town.

With not a cloud in the sky 765 arrives in the town.

Progress on the new bus depot continues to make outstanding progress as seen in the background here with “Northern” red now in evidence. 765 is approaching Foulbridge.

Third tram in service was Blackpool 31 which is seen here as it approaches Pockerley – running clockwise.

    Yes, the same three were out on Wed so it was good to get another run in 765 before she goes home. Despite valiant attempts, I have not yet caught Box 40 In service at Beamish. Hoping to succeed on Sunday
