Beamish Museum tram fleet line-up in unusual photo shoot

Beamish Museum laid on an unusual demonstration of its tram fleet on May 3 when all seven of the operating cars, including two visitors, took part in an out-of-hours cavalcade and line-up in the Victorian town. 

The parade was arranged in order to take a new crop of promotional photographs for use in future publicity material.
