Portsmouth Trolleybuses


Trolleybuses operated in Portsmouth for less than 30 years and a total of 115 vehicles were purchased. More than 50 years after their demise, David Bowler has produced this very detailed book which contains over 200 photographs, of which more than 50 are in colour, and 27 pages of maps. The book tells the story from the electric trams and their replacement by the trolleybuses, to the final conversion to motor bus operation. As with David's previous trolleybus histories, this volume contains many appendices which provide very detailed descriptions of the vehicles and the routes, as well as power generation, overhead equipment and also the full Consultant's Report on the future of the trolleybus system and the co-ordination agreement with Southdown.
