Liverpool No.245


After years of protracted negotiations, Baby Grand 245 turned up at the MTPS base at Wirral Transport Museum in Birkenhead during May 2006. It arrived from the Large Objects Store at Sandhills, Liverpool, after a lengthy journey via the Runcorn bridge. In a tripartate agreement, ownership remained with National Museums Liverpool, but the tram would be restored by the MTPS with the help of a Heritage Lottery grant, and operate on Wirral Council's heritage tramway. NML insisted as much of the original fabric of the tram as possible should be retained in the restoration which was completed by the summer of 2014.
