Trolleybooks Trolleybooks
They have been publishing trolleybus books for more than a quarter-of-a-century. Quite simply, we are trolleybus enthusiasts publishing high quality English language books about trolleybuses. We also feel a need to document trolleybus history in some detail, because if we don't, the chances are it will be lost for ever. Not so long ago there were plenty of UK residents who were easily able to indulge in a bit of nostalgia over the trolleybus in Britain. But it is over 30 years since the last one in Britain ran in public service and so one has to be aged at least 35 to be able to remember them! So TROLLEYBOOKS sees to it that this particular bit of social history isn't forgotten.
LT796 Preserved London Trolleybus 796
This trolleybus is owned by the Paris Transport Museum [AMTUIR] but in recent years has not been on display to the public. Accordingly an approach was made to AMTUIR to see if they were prepared to put 796 on a ten year loan agreement to the LTPS, whose operating premises are at the East Anglia Transport Museum at Carlton Colville. After lengthy negotiations this was agreed and the vehicle returned to UK soil almost 50 years to the day from its departure. While currently in generally good condition the race is now on to restore the vehicle to operating condition for the 50th anniversary of the London trolleybus network closure.
tbus Trolleybus Campaign Site
Traveling in London is hellish for millions of daily commuters. Any idea that a 'caf society' exists is blown away by noise and pollution from unregulated cars and trucks. Buses, forced to pollute in traffic jams, are unreliable service providers. In short, London's road transport stinks. We all need to consider zero emission electric buses and this site does just that.
