This month Bournemouth MF2B 274 arrives at the Christchurch turntable to conclude David Bowler's description of a typical journey in 1962 and Keith Burbidge reports on his use of his model of Bournemouth MS2 171 to celebrate VE Day. Gunter Mackinger provides a photo feature of Kaunas, Lithuania, where the large trolleybus fleet has been extensively modernised in recent months. In addition to reports on the Society's Burntwood premises and Sandtoft's new oral history project we have news of developments at Sandtoft and elsewhere and the latest news of trolleybus operation worldwide.
That's not all! Roger Clark reviews "A London Trolleybus Reborn", the story of the Society's London Q1 trolleybus, 1812. The book is available to purchase from BTS Sales (see the link on the website Home page). Also now available is the BTS calendar 2021, featuring a year's worth of splendid photographs of three-axle trolleybuses, all taken by Tony Belton.
This month we also announce the Society's AGM, which this year will be held using the Zoom videoconferencing app. See inside for further details. Would you like to help run the BTS? The Committee is keen to recruit new members and videoconferencing will help us to be flexible to make it possible for members who are distant from our traditional base to be part of the Committee.
(The online edition of Trolleybus correctly displays September on the cover but unfortunately the printed edition shows August. Apologies for the error).
