News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

50 years since the end of Maidstone's trolleybuses

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.
