« on: January 23, 2011, 09:58:53 PM »
Thought I'd start this topic off with some massive news, of which I was only made aware of yesterday at the museum.

This weekend, Ashton trolleybus 87 is to be towed to Sandtoft, for useage at some of their Trolleydays events this year. In return, Newcastle trolleybus 501 will be sent up here for use at the Trolleybus Weekend in September, where it will run alongside newly-restored 628, for the first time since 1966.

Soon, Blackpool VAMBAC car 11 will go to Beamish for a few days at the start of September.

When it goes back, will you re-swap it back for trolleybus 87?

I believe so, as the LTPS are the custodians of 87. Maybe, when it comes back, it will not ride as appallingly as it did at the start of the season!  :P
