Blackpool Balloon 255 was built in 1934 by English Electric, originally with a generous 40/44 seating arrangement, but reseated to 40/54 in 1960/61.
In 1968 it was renumbered as 718.
In 2002 it was radically rebuilt to become "Millennium" car 718 and, after further modification for use on the modernised line, is now part of the Heritage Fleet.
