Newcastle Trolleybus Days

On two days this Easter weekend, there will be the last opportunity to see two Newcastle Trolleybuses in service together for a number of years.

Both six wheelers, 501 and 628, will be in service at the East Anglia Transport Museum at Carlton Colville (near Lowestoft) on Good Friday 6th April and Saturday 7th April. After the event 501 will be returning to the Beamish Museum following its short term loan.

The venue opens to the public from
from 1 pm on both days but on Saturday there's the added bonus that the duo, and other vehicles from the collection, will  be operating After Dark services until 9 pm.
On Good Friday the museum closes at 5 pm.

Free bus tours will also operate and there will be a free connecting service to Lowestoft.

My thanks goes to Neil Chilvers at the East Anglia Transport Museum for his help with preparing this post.
