Balloon 700 on Training

Balloon 700 and Flexity 004 at Starr Gate tram station this morning
Balloon 700 was out and about on the tramway today on driver training or familiarisation, although it was carrying no 'L' plates. It was noted running between Starr Gate and Bispham this morning, but may have ventured further north during the day.
