Exhibition Preparation

Work for the new 'Century of Trams' Exhibition is not just confined to the work in the Exhibition Hall. Much work for this project takes place in the offices with planning, logistics, documentation, meetings and negotiations all taking place on a regular basis.

One of the more interesting pieces of this work is the work taking place on Blackpool 'Balloon' 712 to bring it up to display standard.

The following photo shows 712 in the Blackpool Transport's paint shop on the 15th February where they are kindly repainting the tram in 1930s livery for us.
