Founded on its present site in 1969 to house, restore and run trolleybuses when they were fast disappearing from Britain’s streets, The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft has grown from a handful of vehicles and now has over 50 – the largest collection of preserved trolleybuses in the world.
However public transport doesn’t exist in isolation. In addition to describing the rise and fall of the British trolleybus we attempt to set its story in the social history of its era, explaining the factors that shaped events. And, having purchased additional land in recent years, we now have ambitious plans to expand our facilities and exhibitions with work starting this winter – see below.

NOTTS & DERBY 353 LEAVES SANDTOFT – TEMPORARILY!
Our resident Notts & Derby trolleybus number 353 (seen attached) is currently being prepared to be moved for storage offsite to make valuable space in our Depot.
353 arrived at Sandtoft 5 years ago after being stored in Winkleigh, Devon, where it had been since it moved into preservation in 1967.
