Mount Pleasant and Eglinton: This shot, captured by Richard Kunz of the New Electric Railway Journal, shows the Eglinton Loop in a 1974-75 scene. The streetcar would be gone two years later, and the trolley buses would follow in less than twenty. http://transit.toronto.on.ca/streetcar/4114.shtml
Ghost Town Mysteries: The old trolley buses of Sandon, B.C.
For close to 40 years, around 300 Brill trolleys drove the streets of Vancouver, powering the city’s transit system, before they were taken out of commission in the mid 1980s.So why are eight of them in the ghost town of Sandon, 700 kilometres away, for over a decade?
The Newcastle upon Tyne trolleybus system once served the city of Newcastle upon Tyne.. Started on 2 October 1935, it gradually replaced the Newcastle tramway network. By the standards of the various now-defunct trolleybus systems in the United Kingdom, the Newcastle system was a large one, with a total of 28 routes, and a maximum fleet of 204 trolleybuses. It finished on 2 October 1966. [yours truly travelled on these when a nipper]
