Balloons on Private Hire

Balloons 718, 717 & 723 loading up with passengers at the Imperial Hotel
Three of the heritage tram fleet took part in a private hire on the evening of 27th February. Balloons 717, 718 & 723 picked up a large party of guests from the Imperial Hotel shortly before 18:00, just after sunset. The plan was for the three trams to run south down to Starr Gate, then return their passengers back to the Imperial Hotel.

  1. Looks like it was a lovely evening for a tram ride!

    1. Looks can deceive, it was bitterly cold!
