Easter Saturday Heritage

The weather on Easter Saturday was a big improvement over the previous week in Blackpool, so much so that it was decided that the forecast was good enough to warrant bringing out Boat 230 and open-top Balloon 706 to run on the green timetabled heritage service, the first time that open trams have been used on Heritage Tour service this season. The other two trams in use on the day were Bolton 66 and Centenary Car 642. The weather remained sunny with light winds all day, providing perfect conditions for passengers to enjoy rides on the two open cars.
