In Pictures: Blackpool 31 in action at Beamish

Beamish is now without any loan trams following the departure of first Manchester 765 and now Blackpool & Fleetwood 40 meaning the standard service at the museum is being operated by the home based fleet solely. The schools may now be back but Beamish remains busy with plenty of coach trips making the trip to the northeast for a day out at this excellent museum, indeed on Tuesday 17th September there were no fewer than 10 coaches noted in the car park. And with fine late summer weather still being enjoyed it was a chance for the open top trams to stretch their wheels a bit more.

Blackpool 31 arrives at Pockerley with a full load of passengers. Taken from the top deck of Newcastle 114, which was waiting for the Blackpool car to arrive, the right-hand side sees the remains of the short siding which used to be located here before being removed a few years ago.
