Ipswich Trolley 105

Ipswich Trolley 105 PV8270 a Karrier W Park Royal H56R of 1948 
Whilst not specifically relating to our local area, Ipswich Trolleybus 105 has been preserved with the help and advice of the members of the East Anglia Transport Museum at Carlton Colville

She was the centre of attraction at today's Electric Transport Celebration held at the Ipswich Transport Museum

Ipswich 105 was registered PV8270 and is a Karrier W Park Royal H56R of 1948 and withdrawn in 1962. She was used as a canteen for a few years until purchased by the Museum.

105 has taken 10 years to restore and has taken some 50,000 man hours to achieve it.

To mark the occasion a London Borimaster was there in the shape of LT5 LT12EHT, which was moved around the museum area appropriately in electric mode
