The move from the dock site to the new building at the Solent Sky Museum should have happened just before lockdown, so has been in the planning for a few months. The move on Wednesday26th took place with fingers crossed for no repeat of the gales earlier in the week.
The first to move was Lisbon 715, the heaviest at 10.5 tons. It was transported and craned successfully but was reluctant to get into its place at the side of the new building, but after calling for a heavy duty winch it was finally in its location. Next to arrive was the saloon of Southampton 38. built as an open topper in 1902, withdrawn 1948 still as an open topper. Whilst 715 was still being manoeuvered, was parked at the side of the yard to await housing.
The next to arrive with some ease was Southampton double decker no 11 built in 1924 as an open top car no 3, rebuilt with top cover in 1925 and renumbered 11, withdrawn 1948. This was on accommodation trollies. Weighing in at a mere 6 tons this was relatively easy to manoeuver and with only a small amount of persuasion was in its new home by 1600 hours.

Beeston today by tram from Toton Lane. Frank reports ridership is increasing and with so many seats "closed" overcrowding is becoming a problem with passengers unable to maintain the 2M rule at times.
