Picture in Time: Blackpool Boat 604 & Balloon 724

Two trams waiting between duties at Pleasure Beach is the feature of this edition of Picture in Time.

Taken on 16th August 1981 in this photo we are at Pleasure Beach loop with the crews of Boat 604 and Balloon 724 taking a break before called upon by the Inspector to operate another journey along the Prom. 604 is at the head of the queue here and features the simple Green and Cream livery along with single piece windscreens and the familiar sight of a trolley. A trolley is also the power conductor for 724 which waits behind and this tram along includes between decks adverts for CIS Insurance.
