In Pictures: A dull and damp July weekday sees Box 40 in action

With most schools still hard at work – at least for a few more weeks anyway – Beamish is currently in the inbetween season, sort of the calm before the storm of the summer holidays if you want!, with a three tram service enough to suffice those visitors to the museum and this is exactly what greeted Trevor Hall on Tuesday 9th July. This included Box 40 which is now the sole on loan tram in the north east (scheduled to remain until the end of August) and it was joined by two further enclosed trams in the shape of Sunderland 16 and Sheffield 264 with it being a rather dull and damp day (the sunny weather seems to have gone on holiday itself again for now).

With the destination blind set to the nice curved North Pier and Tower style 40 approaches the Entrance.

40 leaves the Town for a clockwise circuit of the museum.

40 stands at the Entrance ready for yet another circuit of the tramway.

No. 1 end of 40 showing the spacious surrounds for the driver but no seat!

The sole tram running anti-clockwise was Sheffield 264 and it too is seen at the Entrance as it passes 40. (All Photographs by Trevor Hall, 9th July 2019)
