Our London Q1 trolleybus no 1812 is at present on loan to the London Bus Museum for a period of five years and is on display at the LBM's premises at Brooklands. There has not previously been a trolleybus displayed at the LBM and 1812 will show the Museum's many visitors the importance of the trolleybus in London's transport history. It will raise awareness of the BTS and of the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft. 1812 will return to service at Sandtoft in time for the Society's Diamond Jubilee in 2021.
History Of The British Trolleybus Society
Between 2011 and 2013 Dave Hall serialised the history of the BTS in the days when we were known as the Reading Transport Society. It also traced the history of the trolleybus preservation movement generally up to the time when museums at Carlton Colville and Sandtoft became a reality.
