The trolleybus museum at Sandtoft have their main event in July, known as The Sandtoft Gathering which includes visiting buses of all types. The main event took place yesterday, Sunday the 28th July.
On 27th July, Ken Jones braved the weather to visit preview day – a low key event especially if it is pouring with rain . There were 4 trolleybuses in service during the day all having to plough through surface water.
Ken’s pictures show some of the vehicles already lined up for the main event, including foreign and British trolleybuses as well as the Hastings single deck trolleybus which was once a home, and which one day will be restored.
The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft has commissioned the construction of a full-size working replica of a pioneer 1911 trolleybus.
It was built in the Czech Republic in just 15 months from inception to testing and delivery.It arrived at the Sandtoft Museum on Saturday, 4 May 2019.

Part 2 of Ken's pictures will be shown this week, on a future posting, thanks to Ken for sending us his selection.
The Museum offers a fascinating day out for all the family. It is open on specific open days only between April and November (called “Trolleydays”) when visitors can ride on some of the trolleybuses. Full information about the museum and the vehicles here
