London and Blackpool

LT 1622 moving from the workshop to make room for Blackpool 166.

166's traction motors are to be overhauled and repaired this winter.


  1. I'm assuming this means that it will be returning to the operating fleet? If so, a brilliant choice of tram to put back in, because the operating fleet is sorely lacking open-toppers. :-D

  2. Yes, it's a classic example of what happens when restorsation/repairs are done piece meal. Now the wheels are sorted, the trucks ovehauled, the wiring has been replaced and the motors overhauled/repaired its should be in a very sound condition for the future. Thanks must go to the workshop for fitting it into the plan and those who have put the money up to have the motors repaired.
