236s First trip to Glory Mine

Blackpool 236 took its first trip up to Glory Mine since joining the collection at Crich on Monday 23rd April. The tram had been to Glory Mine previously in 1985 when it was on loan from Blackpool Transport Services.

The original tram numbers have now been added to the side of 236. The numbers were generously donated by LTT member John Bradley who used to work at Blackpool Transport when they were throwing out all the old numbers after they were removed from the trams.
