Rigby Road Clears Out

The amount of trams stored at Rigby Road is now rapidly decreasing, with many trams now leaving for their new homes. This weeks departures started off with 678 leaving for an emerging line of Friends of Fleetwood Trams on the 14th of December and was pushed onto the low loader by Balloon 715, which has recently been used for many shunting duties. Next to leave, on the 15th of December was Brush 621 and then 627 on the 16th, which moved to Kirkham Prision to receive minor restoration by the prison inmates. When the Copse Road Museum opens, they will be joined by the rest of the Friends of Fleetwood Trams Collection within the museum.
