Last trolleybus in London- 55th Anniversary

Fifty five years ago today ( 9th May 1962) the last London Transport trolleybus ran in London- Route 657 Hounslow to Shepherds Bush.

They were modern, silent, swift and clean, but the road lobby didn’t like them. Today with London air pollution at dangerous levels, we need them (and trams) back.

The politicos gave us Borismaster- hugely expensive- unreliable and too complicated- we had the “keep it simple solutions” and we threw them away in the 50’s & 60’s. So sad.
