It’s a really enjoyable day – read some reviews here:

“Thank you Richard to you and your team for the very memorable day yesterday; very enjoyable and really appreciated.”

“What a superb day you and your fellow enthusiasts gave us. I’m still grinning now as I think back to the clicks, “dead spaces” and heft of not
only the wheel but clambering in and out of the cabin. Getting the cornering speeds was but one highlight but maneuvering in the yard has to be the most rewarding – and difficult! What an experience”

“A quick email to say thank you for a really enjoyable day. You and your staff are obviously extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what you do. It was an absolute pleasure to experience the day. also many thanks to the catering staff as the food was absolutely excellent”

“Thanks for sending the photo’s and for you and your team for providing a very enjoyable day yesterday. I must admit that I did not realise that there is so much more to driving a trolleybus than a diesel version.”

“Hi Richard, Great day yesterday. Excellent team, excellent food, excellent company, excellent trolleybus. Look forward to seeing you and the team again.”

“Many thanks for this. We both had a great day, and enjoyed the experience tremendously. Thanks again for your forbearance when we made mistakes. You, Mike and Dave must have the patience of saints !”

“Please accept my thanks for providing a wonderful day. This was mainly as a day to celebrate my brother’s 60th birthday, and he is still buzzing with excitement now,  but we all found it very enjoyable…. The organisation from the initial enquiry to the actual day was superb and please pass on my thanks to all concerned. Also a special thanks for the catering. Certainly fed us well.”

“I know my brother will be a regular visitor and I’m sure I will be joining him sometimes. Again  many thanks to all and hope to meet again soon.”
