English Electric ‘Balloon’
The English Electric Balloon is a type of double-decker tram that is operated on the Blackpool Tramway. Initially brought into service in 1934, the Balloon formed the backbone of the Blackpool tram fleet until the tramway’s conversion to a modern light rail network in 2012. Following the network’s re-opening, nine Balloons were converted to meet the disability regulations to serve as a supplement to the modern Flexity 2 vehicles. Some of the Balloons have been retained for use within the heritage fleet.

The tram catenary height is not changeable, it’s locked away in the engine code. Maybe something for TpF2 perhaps?
