Boat Car 600 is one of the Heritage trams that still operate on the Blackpool Tramway. It was built by English Electric, Preston in 1934. Originally there were twelve boat trams but four were scrapped in 1968. #600 spent a period on long term loan to Heaton Park Tramway from 1984 until 1998. In 2008 it was repainted in its original livery and named "Duchess of Cornwall". LinkExternal link
