Balloons on Specials - Day 4

This picture of 014 & 700 sums up the day, heavy cloud, cold winds, rain and sunshine, and all in one shot!
The fourth day of Balloon use saw only four of the trams in use on specials, a fifth Balloon was unable to be used due to a lack of a driver. The four Balloons that made it out were 700, 718, 709 & 707, entering service in that order. Thursday was a real mixed bag weather wise, with heavy cloud, occasional rain and hail showers, cold winds and even a few spells of sunshine!

The mixed bag of weather produced this rainbow near Central Pier, with 700 passing southbound
