Relive the trolleybuses of Reading 50 years on...
Everything you ever wanted to know about the silent, smooth and pollution-free trolleybuses of Reading in a new book, published to commemorate 50 years since their disappearance.

The story presented is detailed and comprehensive, told over 278 pages, together with 412 photographs, maps and diagrams.
