The new Front Street Terrace – part of the new 1950s Town at Beamish – was officially opened on Saturday 19th February. Although the trams will not be running into the 1950s Town (eventually a trolleybus route is planned), the grand opening day of Front Street did see a three tram service in operation – thought to be the first time since at least March 2020 that three trams have been in public service at Beamish at the same time.
The three trams which were running on this day were Oporto 196 (anti-clockwise) and Sunderland 16 and Sheffield 264 (clockwise), which were probably the three most seasonal appropriate trams which are currently available for use. The tram service continues to run around the complete circuit of tramway following the reopening earlier this month of the section between Foulbridge and the Town passing the Events Field. In addition to the trams both the Daimlers, the Northern General replica and the Crossville wheelchair accessible bus were all in action as well.
