2022 Calendar

BTS Calendar 2022

Next year's calendar is now available to purchase from the BTS Sales stand or via the website. Tony Belton has again provided the 13 photographs and all the captions for 2022's theme of trolleybus tours. The glossy, laminated cover is a splendid photo of Reading 193 on a Society tour in 1962 when it had just been repainted, only one year after entering service. Following its repaint 193 looks just as good in 2021! Trolleybuses that can be seen at Sandtoft also feature for the last three months of the year; South Yorkshire 2450, Porto 140 and Manchester 1344. In between we see trolleybuses on tour in Derby, Bournemouth (London 260), Wolverhampton (Walsall 869), and Glasgow, with overseas visits to Wellington, Dayton, Sarajevo, San Francisco and Kapfenburg. Make sure of your copy by ordering now! They make great Christmas presents, so buy lots - all profits go towards trolleybus preservation! £12 including postage and packing..
