    reliable and regular member of the heritage fleet in Blackpool throughout the season and even became the first of the heritage fleet to carry adverts when it received between deck adverts for Fleetwood Tram Sunday Burton and Ashby 14 Normally trams nominated in this category have been so because they have re entered service after a period out of use but Burton and Ashby 14 hasn t turned a wheel in anger at all during the past 12 months or indeed for many years previous This tram may not have run in service but thanks to the determination of a group of individuals it has made the return journey from Detroit where it had been for over 30 years and was now in a semi derelict condition following the closure of its tramline In doing so it has become only the second tram which had made the US as its permanent home to return and who knows may well pave the way for more to come back to the UK 14 can now be found at the Statfold Barn Railway where it is currently on display with consideration being given to a small running line to allow it to stretch its legs once again Hull 96 The last time this tram was seen in service it was running as Leeds 6 in a drab grey livery but in October 2015 after a lengthy restoration by a small group of enthusiasts the tram was relaunched into service as Hull 96 Looking resplendent in a full Hull Corporation Tramways livery 96 has now settled back into the operating fleet at the Heaton Park Tramway adding another vital winter car to the serviceable trams Liverpool 245 The will it won t it sage of Liverpool 245 finally came to an end in September 2015 when the first time in 58 years give or take a couple of days a Baby Grand operated on the streets of Merseyside The tram first arrived in Birkenhead in 2006 with full funding for the restoration following in 2010 and in the five years since then a full and comprehensive restoration has taken place There was the aborted launch during 2014 after faults were found with the tram but that should not detract too much from the return to service of 245 which has proved to be popular whenever it has run on the Birkenhead Heritage Tramway London County Council 106 Having last run in 2010 London County Council 106 was returned to service at the Crich Tramway Village during June after an extensive overhaul in the workshops thanks to funding from the London County Council Tramways Trust Obviously with it being an open topper rules dictate that it should be a very wet launch event but despite that it has proved to a popular returnee to the operating fleet who can really resist an open top tram ride 106 was also part of one of the best tram line ups seen at the TMS 60 event in
