Blackpool Railgrinder 752

 

The Manchester Transport Museum Society operates on a short length of track in Heaton Park in Manchester, there is a small tram shed and a museum located there as well. The Railgrinder was aquired by the society in 2008 when Blackpool Transport began their fleet reduction in preparation for the 2012 upgrade. 752 is currently receiving some attention to bring it back into usable condition and will become a dedicated works car at Heaton Park.

 

In March 2010, 752 was decorated as an illuminated tram to mark the 30th Anniversary of the tramway.
