700 on Heritage Tour

Prototype Balloon 700 providing a bit of variety on the Heritage Tour
Balloon 700 was used on the heritage service today, and although this is not really a heritage tram any more, due to the addition of widened doorways and the removal of its bumpers, lifeguards and swing-over seats, the tram is still popular with enthusiasts, and would be a lot more popular if it was painted back into a heritage colour scheme, despite the modern additions. 706 "Princess Alice'" is still suffering from electrical problems, and was replaced by the Frigate part way through the day.

706 failed again today with electrical problems, seen here at North Pier on 15th April
