ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2021
We are pleased to announce that it is intended to resume the Company's form of actual (as opposed to virtual) Annual General Meetings this year.
The 2021 Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 20 October 2021 commencing at 16.00hrs at the premises of the Model Railway Club, 4 Calshot Street, London, N1 Further details of the Meeting will be posted on this page in due course.

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 the AGM to ensure that there have been no late changes to the arrangements previously announced.

London Meetings

We are delighted to announce that, after a period of 19 months' enforced suspension, we are proposing to recommence our programme of London meetings on Wednesday 15 September 2021. We look forward to welcoming back as many members and friends from our previous regular audience as are able to attend, together with all others with an interest in trolleybuses.

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 15th September John Parkin: A medley of trolleybuses from home and abroad.
  • Wednesday 20th October John Laker: Video presentation: To include Auckland and Wellington in 1977, Ghent, Yalta, Shanghai and Beijing in 2012, Luzern, Naples. Also events at the Black Country Museum and the 2012 London Event at EATM Carlton Colville.
  • Wednesday 17th November Keith Farrow: A London Surprise
  • Wednesday 15th December Mike Russell: A selection of British images showing trolleybuses using, or going to, unusual stretches of wiring, short-workings, depot journeys etc.
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

Any further TrolleyZoom Meetings will be listed here:-

TrolleyZoom meetings
TrolleyZoom meetingsare suspended for the summer. They will resume on Thursday 14th October with a presentation by Martin Eady on the subject of Teesside trolleybuses. Please check this website for details of future meetings.

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

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:-
news@nationaltrolleybusassociation.org


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: www.atts.to.it 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.
