723 Pictorial

Balloon 723 at Cleveleys, about to depart on its last Heritage Tour of the day terminating at the Tower
Here are a selection of views of Balloon 723, which was recently repainted into the 1980s style Blackpool fleet livery for use in the Heritage Tour fleet. All the photos were taken during the debut of the newly repainted tram over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

723 parked short of the heritage stop in Pharos Street, enabling a clear side view of the tram to be taken
