On Tuesday 6th June, Scotts Heavy Haulage moved Brush 623 from the Heaton Park Tramway to Blackpool, where the tram will be on temporary loan in order that it can take part in the 80th Anniversary of the Brush Car celebrations on 23rd & 24th September. The following day Scotts were involved in two more tram moves, these being Brush 625 and Balloon 726 which were both transported the relatively short distance from the Port of Fleetwood to Rigby Road. 625 and 726 are privately owned, and are being stored in Rigby Road tram depot by a mutual agreement.
