Description Description
In the last century, the trolleybus developed into a successful provider of public transport in many towns around Britain. Part streetcar, part bus, the trolleybus is unique in its speed and acceleration dwarf regular buses. Plus, it’s quiet and fume-free, and consumed home-produced electricity generated using coal.  

There have been books about trolleybuses in the last several years, but few of them have tackled the subject from the vehicle manufacturers' angle. A-Z of British Trolleybuses describes each manufacturer and their products, and shows what happened to these vehicles throughout their lives.
