Further reading:
London Trolleybuses - a class album by Hugh Taylor was released by Capital Transport on November 4th 2006. This hardback book is priced at £18.95 and contains 113 colour photographs all of which have informative captions. The text deals with each class individually and summarises their movements around the system; 'odd' allocations such as 794B working on route 667 and 1478 working at Stamford Hill depot are detailed giving the reader an insight into some of the lesser known movements of the London trolleybus. Virtually the whole system is covered and is a book that every trolleybus enthusiast should own.

It can be purchased online from or by telephone on 020 8407 3535 using your credit card. Alternative methods of payment in sterling [e.g. Cheques, Money Orders etc] are acceptable by ordering from Capital Transport Sales, PO Box 250, Harrow, HA3 5ZH, United Kingdom.

The book was reviewed in the January 2007 Buses magazine in very glowing terms.  Note that the book contains many pictures from both Terry Russell’s and David Bradley's photographic collections.
