Proudly presenting our latest project
As part of the celebrations for our 50th Anniversary this year, the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft 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.
The Trolleybus Museum can now tell another chapter about the history of the trolleybus - and tell it in the best way it can by allowing visitors to take a ride on it! It presents a rare opportunity to sample what it was like over 100 years ago to ride on a solid-tyred, wooden-seated “trackless trolley” (as they were referred to in their day).

We are delighted to announce that we have purchased a 1½ acre area of land adjoining the Trolleybus Museum, meaning that the premises at Sandtoft combining the Trolleybus Museum and the British Trolleybus Society’s Burntwood now extends to over 7¾ acres - almost double the original area of the Museum. Our Chairman, Graham Bilbé, commented "This expansion will enable the Trolleybus Museum to radically redevelop the Museum and greatly improve facilities for visitors".

We are pleased to report that we have been given Planning Permission for the construction of a new building that will house eight trolleybuses.
We are hoping that work to construct the new building can commence shortly and that it will be commissioned later this summer.
Meanwhile, the strategic discussions with the British Trolleybus Society to jointly develop the Trolleybus Museum are progressing. To help us to provide the best for our visitors, we would welcome some feedback about what YOU would like to see included in our enlarged and improved museum – please contact us with your suggestions.

We are absolutely delighted to announce that the British Trolleybus Society has purchased the bungalow and property adjoining the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft, allowing the Trolleybus Museum to be able to significantly improve its facilities. The Trolleybus Museum's Board of Directors and the British Trolleybus Society Committee will be working closely together in the coming weeks and months to jointly develop a strategic plan that meets the specific needs of the British Trolleybus Society and the Trolleybus Museum and which will result in a much improved visitor experience.
