Beamish and the Boat

Boat car 605(233) entered service at Beamish on Thursday 12th April on the first day of the museum's popular Great North Steam Fair. It is the car's first passenger carrying duties since withdrawal from service in Blackpool back in October 2009 and subsequent preservation by the LTT. It was exactly 6-weeks previously that 605 had arrived at the museum and in the interim period the tram has been fully repainted and commissioned for duty.
On Sunday 22 April, an official launch of 605 is planned at the museum. Watch this blog for details...
