At Blackpool Heritage Tram Tours we find that a lot of our regular passengers have a favourite tram-car, or type of tram. Some prefer the gentile Edwardian style of our open fronted Bolton 66, whilst others have a thing for the 1980’s functionality of the Centenary cars.
For Rob Bray it is undoubtedly the Balloon tram, Blackpool’s iconic double deckers which date from the 1930s. Keeping a log of his visits and the mileage covered on each car, Rob realised this week that he has travelled on Balloon car 717 for justover 1,000 miles!
