Feltham 504 is using the crossover outside the Central Bus Station to return to Belle Isle 27, on a service which ran on Sunday afternoons between Belle Isle and the Bus Station to supplement the main service between Belle Isle and Halton. Because of the remnants of the snow, an attendant was stationed at the bus station to keep the points of the crossover free by sweeping as necessary.

For many years trams from Middleton and Belle Isle used to turn in the city centre on their way in from Meadow Lane by turning left from Leeds Bridge into Swinegate, continue via Bishopsgate Street, Neville Street, and Great Wilson Street to reach Meadow Lane for the outward journey. Trams leaving the depot to take up service could not, due to the sharpness of the curve required, reach the correct track in Swinegate. They left Swinegate Depot by using a less sharp curve on to the inbound track from City Square, loaded and then regained the correct track by using the facing crossover ahead of Feltham 504 in this photograph.
