Warrington Car 28
March 22 saw the exposure to sunlight, of Warrington Car 28, for the first time in about 5 years when the body was moved from where our Museum shop is today to the running shed. The body, which has stood on wooden blocks for five years, was finally moved onto its truck. The tram was then moved outside to allow it to be pushed onto the other line to allow access to the pit to continue maintenance on other tram cars.
