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 www.capitaltransport.com 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. Orders delivered within the UK are
post free; those outside the UK should add £7 when ordering.
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.
The traverser in CN also incorporated a
turntable, as seen in this evocative view of 78.
