All was well on the lower deck with members having plenty of room to spread about.

Through the wash, just for the fun of it, at the new depot at Star Gate.

The first, of many, photostops during the day was at the Pleasure Beach loop. Something I personally, along with Roy, didn't get to experience. See the next photo.

Recovering Roy, having got lost on the way to the depot and missing the start of the tour we passed Roy and Reg on the Promenade. Luckily we were due to cross over and run back the same way some 300 yards after we passed them. When we returned, Roy was MISSING, well, he'd gone to the toilet, so Reg got on and I waited for him and the tram to pick us up again!

723 awaits the passage of another service tram through the Fleetwood Terminus allowing for a great shot, in the sunshine, with the North Euston hotel as the backdrop.

Our second stop at Fleetwood was adjacent to the 1840 Pharos lighthouse a magnificent structure, which, at over 90 feet in height dwarfed our tram.

723 makes a fine sight in the sunshine at Fleetwood as Roy grabs a shot.

Top deck fun and frolics!! Karen and Helen are certainly struggling to contain themselves as we head for the chippy for some lunch.

Another opportunity, to photograph the tram from every conceivable angle, was afforded to us on our return to Star Gate to cover a rarely used crossover for trams conveying passengers.
