Blackpool 712

It has been agreed that Blackpool Transport Services will repaint Balloon car 712 in the pre-war livery prior to delivery to the Museum.

Whilst not in 30s condition (712 being open top in the 30s!) the 1930s livery is being applied to show the streamlining effect of the livery on the vehicle. In this condition 712 will represent the ultimate in art-deco trams of the 1930s in the new Exhibition.
