Trolley Bus Collection

Our trolley bus collection includes two operational trolley buses made by Sunbeam, Wolverhampton. We also have a rare and early Wolverhampton trolleybus, Number 78, made by Guy Motors in 1931, which is awaiting restoration.

Trolley buses last ran in Britain in 1972 in Bradford. Our trolley bus route is currently the longest in the country.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we are currently unable to operate our trolleybuses. All other heritage transport is running as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
