715 tours for shareholders

Shareholders of Balloon car 715 were invited to have a free illumination tour on the tram on Saturday 6th November, the final weekend of the operating season. The tour followed the inaugural enthusiasts' tour using OMO car 8 which was accompanied by the LTT's Coronation car 304.

715 operated North Pier - Bispham - Pleasure Beach - Bispham - Depot for shareholders and their invited guests. Sorry for the short notice given and also for the number of shareholders that couldn't make it.

Blackpool Transport has confirmed that car 715 is in the 2010/11 repaint schedule and that further use of 715 is planned for 2011, given the number of Balloon cars likely to be out of service due to doorway modifications.
