Brief History

The Nottingham trolleybus system once served the city of Nottingham, in the county of Nottinghamshire, England. Opened on 10 April 1927, it gradually replaced the Nottingham tramway network.

By the standards of the various now-defunct trolleybus systems in the United Kingdom, the Nottingham system was a medium-sized one, with a total of 8 routes, and a maximum fleet of 157 trolleybuses. It was closed on 30 June 1966.

Nottingham was also served by another system, the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire trolleybus system, which was in operation between 1932 and 1953.

Six of the former Nottingham system trolleybuses are preserved. Four of them are at the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft, Lincolnshire, England, and the other two are in a private collection in Nottinghamshire.


Nottingham 466 is receiving much attention, and is making good progress. However, these projects take time and dedication, and completion is still some way off.

The vehicle can be viewed at the Museum if accompanied by a member of the Museum Staff.
