News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

50 years since the end of Maidstone's trolleybuses
« Reply #1 on: April 16, 2017, 18:31:23 »
16 Apr 2017, Sandtoft Trolleybus Museum near Doncaster (and quite near where I live too).
They were marking 50 years since the end of trolleybuses in Maidstone, with two former Maidstone vehicles (and one from Huddersfield) giving rides around the site. Interesting place, with a very 1950s feel to it, including a 50s prefab, and a bike shop.
Anyway, a few quick photos:
The first one has "Sutton Rd" on the destination blind.
The interiors are all from one of the Maidstone vehicles. I liked the light fitting.
