The Black Country Museum Transport Group
The Transport Group was originally established as the Wolverhampton Trolleybus Preservation Society to save a Wolverhampton trolleybus when the system closed.
The Group is now completely responsible for the operation of the trolleybus system at the Museum and maintains the overhead wire system and provides volunteer drivers for the Museum's electric tramway.
Group members also assist in the operation of other motor vehicles of the Museum and provide voluntary assistance with other Museum activities as necessary.
Eric, Transport Group Volunteer tells us about his experiences as a volunteer
"My role is to restore, maintain and operate the Museum's fleet of trams, motorbuses and trolleybuses and I get a real boost out of seeing something brought back to life and running again. I would thoroughly recommend volunteering, you don't have to be an expert just have the enthusiasm."
