Beamish has also at least one trolleybus in store, and a short length of wire for running alongside the trams there, but trolleys are not allowed to run on public days, as they are too new for the period of the museum. Click HERE for a shot of Beamish's Newcastle trolleybus number 501 in store in their depot, restored and in working order. The Museum has plans for another street of a later period, and trolleybuses will run along this street.

During 2006, John Zebedee of the British Trolleybus Society (BTS), researched the details of all the British trolleybuses preserved in Britain and where they were. He published his findings in early 2007 and then updated it in January 2011. Click on a year to show what he found. You can also see the 2011 findings organised by original operator rather than location here.


Now, the following museums are not in the UK, but they have trolleybuses, and I have visited and taken photographs:

Halton County Radial Railway run by the Ontario Electric Railway Historical Association (Canada).    

La Spezia Transport Museum (Italy).

Bologna Transport Museum (Italy).
