|OPN807 today, wearing the Brighton & Hove colours applied in September 2010|
Unfortunately, we are aware that the bus is being used to damage our business reputation and the legal fees being clocked up could be better spent on the real task of bus preservation. 18 months later - OPN807 remains with us! Funny world isn't it...During a shunt round today, OPN807 was captured on camera.

The LTT's former Blackpool "Open Boat" tramcar car 605(233) entered service at Beamish Museum in County Durham on Thursday 12th April, the first day of the museum's popular Great North Steam Fair. It is the tram's first passenger carrying duties since withdrawal from service in Blackpool back in October 2009 and subsequent preservation by the LTT. It was exactly 6-weeks previously that 605 had arrived at the museum and in the interim period the tram has been fully repainted and commissioned for duty.

It's not just buses at the BusWorks! Dave our professional coachpainter has been working off site on a Blackpool tram at the Beamish museum. The tram is one of the famous "Open Boat" trams now in the ownership of the Lancastrian Transport Trust and placed on a two-year loan for operation at Beamish. No.605 is being repainted by Dave back into its 1934 style livery.
