In Pictures: Just another day at Beamish

Beamish – The Living Museum of the North – continues to be open five days a week up until the Christmas holidays which while it reduces chances to see the trams in operation still gives plenty of opportunities! One tram a day tends to be in service on the restricted service with the completion of maintenance works on the section of the tramway between Foulbridge and the Town passed the Events Field still needed before a full service can resume.

On 18th November the tram in service was Sheffield 264 whilst Blackpool 31 was seen at the front of the depot alongside Newcastle trolleybus 501. Meanwhile, away from the trams and away from transport completely work on the Remaking Beamish project has been continuing with excellent progress being made on some of the new attractions which will include Spain’s Field Farm (note correction to name of the farm which we previously had down as Hill Top Farm) due to open next year.

Sheffield 264 flies the tram flag and is seen at the Entrance with a service heading back to Foulbridge.

Inside the tram depot and Blackpool 31 takes cover and is joined by Newcastle trolleybus 501 which will eventually be used on the trolleybus route into the new 1950s town at Beamish.
