In Pictures: Trams at Beamish and the new bus depot

Whilst across most of the country heritage trams are taking a well earnt rest (in the main except for weekends in Blackpool and for Lightopia at Heaton Park) it is very much a case of business as usual at Beamish with the museum still open daily up until Christmas which means the trams still need to run with the more enclosed trams seeing the majority of use. The new bus depot has also recently fully and officially opened giving new photo transport opportunities at the museum. Trevor Hall paid a visit on Thursday 28th November when a two tram service was running featuring Sunderland 16 and Sheffield 264.

Sunderland 16 is also seen in the same location.

Inside the new bus depot and fencing has recently been added after a few incidents since it opened to the public.
