Whatever Happened To? Blackpool Centenary 644

Its time to take another look at one of the trams that ran on the final weekend of traditional operation on the Blackpool Tramway with another of the Centenary Cars featuring.

Centenary 644 operated on the Pleasure Beach to Little Bispham daytime service on both Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November 2011. It was shortly before 1630 on that last day that 644 would return to Rigby Road Depot, the last time this tram would run on the Blackpool Tramway.

With Farmer Parr’s Animal World having advertised on the tram for a number of years they decided to acquire the tram for their attraction in Fleetwood. It was January 2012 that the tram would make the trip to Farmer Parr’s and that is where the tram remains to this day, on display as one of a number of attractions for all the family.

Having terminated at Manchester Square for the last time, 644 gets ready to head back to Rigby Road Depot in this shot on 6th November 2011.
