The NTA’s Annual General Meeting took place as scheduled on Wednesday 20th October 2021. It was attended by 12 members (including the Board) and a further 17 members cast votes using the Proxy Vote system. All the Resolutions tabled for consideration were passed nem.con and thus Messrs David Pearson, Michael Russell and Timothy Stubbs were re-appointed and Mr David Lawrence was elected to the Board.

London Meetings

We are delighted to announce that, after a period of 19 months' enforced suspension, we recommenced our programme of London meetings on Wednesday 15 September 2021.

Regular meetings are held in London on trolleybus operation and history. Non-members are sure of a friendly welcome. Light refreshments are available. There is a small charge to defray costs.

Meetings are held at the premises of The Model Railway Club, 4 Calshot Street, London N1 (nearest Underground station: King’s Cross), normally on the third Wednesday of each month, commencing at 7:00pm. There is no meeting in August. In May the meeting usually features a London subject and the date and venue are subject to change. The future programme is set out below and also appears in each issue of Trolleybus Magazine.

  • Wednesday 16th February Alan Osborne - "Trolleybuses and some trams from around the globe". The presentation will cover all seven continents and include 86 different trolleybus systems from 1965 to 2018.

  • Wednesday 16th March Eddie Dawes. "Have they diddled us? - LUT Trams and Trolleybuses."
Because of the uncertainty surrounding government pandemic regulations, which are liable to change, members are strongly advised to check this website shortly before setting out to attend a London meeting to ensure that there have been no late changes to the arrangements previously announced.

TrolleyZoom Meetings
We are pleased to announce that TrolleyZoom meetings have recommenced and will take place for the foreseeable future starting at 19:00hrs on the following dates:

  • Thursday 17th February: Ian Ring will present a show featuring trolleybuses in Czechia in 2009/10.

  • Thursday 17th March: Alan Murray-Rust will make a presentation on his visit to the DDR (East Germany) in July 1974.

Recordings of previous meetings
Wherever possible, recordings of recent TrolleyZoom meetings will be posted here and are normally available for six days afterwards.

20th January 2022 Jurgen Lehmann's presentation of modern trolleybuses in service in Bergen and Riga, plus a few in Solingen Can be viewed at:-
Click Here (It should be available until 26th January 2022).

DON'T BE SHY!! There must be many members who never have the chance to present their photographic work to a wider audience and others who have insufficient for a full two-hour show in London. Please come forward to offer your presentation, otherwise these TrolleyZoom meetings, which are proving very popular, will just fizzle out.

TrolleyZoom meetings are co-ordinated by Peter Haseldine, our News Editor. Offers to present future TrolleyZoom meetings on any trolleybus-related subject, past or present, should be sent to him at:-

Invitation To NTA Members.
Our friends in the Associazione Torinese Tram Storici (ATTS) of Turin cordially invite NTA members to participate in their programme of Zoom meetings. These cover both tramway and trolleybus subjects and their full programme can be found on their website: To view the programme, go to the big green central window, click on number 2 (in blue) and then on the Zoom icon. We shall also post details of individual trolleybus-related meetings on this page of our website.

The ATTS does not post access codes on the website as participation is reserved for ATTS members and special guests (including NTA members). The access codes will be sent to you by e-mail when registering your address with the ATTS. You should confirm NTA membership by quoting your Membership number.

The right is reserved to change the advertised programme in the event of unforeseen circumstances arising.

The Association welcomes offers of presentations for meetings from those who can provide a particular insight into trolleybuses and their operation, present or past. Please initially contact our London Meetings officer, John Parkin, on:- to discuss any suggestion that you have in mind.
