OK, so I don't take the best photograph in the world, but this was a proud day at the Sandtoft Gathering 2000. 619 was passed out for service for the first time in 20 years, and I was shortly to be passed out as an official driver for the first time!

Things have moved on. 619 now has had the interior refurbished, a repaint, correct transfers, a new front panel, Huddersfield crest, new stencilled numberplate and dangling foglight. I now have a replica Huddersfield Corporation Passenger Transport jacket.


    My trolleybus interests are as follows:

  • To preserve our trolleybus heritage by restoring trolley vehicles to working condition.

  • To support museums operating preserved trolleybuses.

  • To actively support initiatives which would return trolleybus operations to Britain's streets.

  • To visit and report on operating systems world-wide.

  • To re-create the operation of trolleys in miniature.

    The above interests have led me to become:

  • Company Secretary for the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft (see links page).

  • One of Sandtoft's Electrical Inspectors.

  • Sandtoft's most frequent trolleybus driver, doing over 200 trolleybus miles per year.

  • World News Editor for Trolleybus, the Journal of the British Trolleybus Society (BTS).

  • Member of the Electric Tbus Group (see links page), campaigning for a return of Trolleycoaches in the UK.
