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 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.

Duties of the Group can include, but are not limited to:

  • Repairing and restoring trolleybuses
  • Supporting, and potentially becoming, a trolleybus driver
  • Offering assistance for other transport and motor vehicle activities at the Museum
  • An involvement in transport / motor vehicle events at the Museum

Eric, Transport Group Volunteer tells us about his experiences as a volunteer 

/media/support/library/eric---copy.jpg"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."
