Reading Trolleybuses

By Dave Hall

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. Telling the whole story of the history, the politics, the economics and the many dedicated individuals who made the service provided by Reading’s trolleybuses exemplary, with a few local difficulties along the way. From the tentative trials and then free rides on a trolleybus on Erleigh Road in 1936, through heydays in the 1950s and 1960s to closure in November 1968. The story presented is detailed and comprehensive, told over 278 pages, together with 412 photographs, maps and diagrams. An entirely new edition, based on Trolleybooks' 1991 publication, but thoroughly updated. A4 hardback, in full colour.
