Following the successful issue of shares in Balloon car 715 during 2010, the LTT is now offering shares in Open Boat 605 which has recently been transferred to Beamish for an initial two-year loan.
The funds raised through the share issue will be used to undertake further work on 605 and fund the ongoing storage costs of the LTT tram fleet in Blackpool.
British Trams Online has generously donated £1500 towards the cost of repainting 605 back into its original livery style - but more is needed to cover the cost of the car's acquisition, storage costs incurred at BTS and the scope of the work required to tidy up 605 for operation at Beamish. Shareholders will also get a chance to drive the tram! Find out more
