In Pictures: B fleet Rebuilt Balloon 707 in service again

We may have gone quiet over the past couple of months over the usage of Blackpool’s B-fleet Balloons and Rebuilt Balloons but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still being used for their main purpose. Although usage has become a little more irregular – its dependent on available tram crews – they do still see use at weekends, mainly concentrated on the Starr Gate/Pleasure Beach to Bispham/Little Bispham section but with the occasional foray a bit further north along the tramway. In this article we take a look at 707 in use on the first day of August with photos from David Stringer.

707 is just pulling away from North Pier here as it heads north to Little Bispham.

Here we see 707 after it has returned to Pleasure Beach. It will now head round the loop before it embarks on its next journey north.

On Little Bispham loop where we see 707 waiting out time before its off south again.
