Trams to Fleetwood?

Although repairs to the Fleetwood end of the tramway are still happening the tram service is expected to commence shortly. Nothing has yet been confermed however a date of around mid June is when the tramway looks like it may restart.

Below shows which trams were in service on the 22nd May:

Cleveleys Service – 642, 645, 646, 647, 648

Specials – 602, 604, 641, 761, 762

The highlight of the day was probably the use of Boats 602 and 604 which both came out togeather just before 2pm.
