Ise Valley Railway donated to the Trolleybus Museum
The Sandtoft Transport Centre Ltd and British Trolleybus Society Joint Working Group is pleased to announce that the Museum Board has accepted a kind offer from Francis Terry to donate his 7¼” gauge miniature "Ise Valley Railway". It is no ordinary 7¼” gauge miniature line with scaled-down mainline engines, but a working railway.
One of the objectives set for the Joint Working Group is to provide additional attractions at Sandtoft and the railway will be the first, once a suitable route has been agreed and the necessary groundwork completed.
Any donations toward the installation of the railway at Sandtoft will be much appreciated.

Proudly presenting our latest project
As part of the celebrations for our 50th Anniversary this year, the Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft commissioned the construction of a full-size working replica of a pioneer 1911 trolleybus. It was built in the Czech Republic in just 15 months from inception to testing and delivery.
The Trolleybus Museum can now tell another chapter about the history of the trolleybus - and tell it in the best way it can by allowing visitors to take a ride on it! It presents a rare opportunity to sample what it was like over 100 years ago to ride on a solid-tyred, wooden-seated “trackless trolley” (as they were referred to in their day).
