715 - over and out!

715 has had a busy year on the Promenade this summer, operating back on loan to Blackpool Transport. Earlier in the summer it was used almost daily until the 'porch door' double decks took over the majority of timetabled duties from July. More recently, 715 has been allocated to Tram Driver Experience (TDE) duties and illumination weekends.

On the final weekend of the traditional tramway, 715 was hired by the LTT on Saturday 05 November and on the following day by the Fylde Trammway Society. On its last day it operated from 1430 to 2200hrs between Pleasure Beach and Little Bispham, including some Foxhall and Cabin turnbacks.
