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.


The programme of London meetings has been suspended with immediate effect until further notice.

When it is possible to resume London meetings, information will be posted on this section of the website and in Trolleybus Magazine.
We apologise to all members and friends for this action, which has been taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and advice issued by H M Government.

TrolleyZoom Meetings

Whilst London meetings are suspended as a result of the coronavirus pandemic restrictions, the NTA will operate a series of on-line meetings (TrolleyZoom) using Zoom. The meetings will last 40 minutes (including sign-in time) and will start promptly at 1900hrs (BST) on Wednesday evenings. (This is 1800 GMT, or 2000 CET). Zoom meetings lasting no longer than 40 minutes and with no more than 100 "attendees" are free of charge.

If you would like to take part, please email David Lawrence, Membership Secretary at for the Access Code that you will need to log-in.

Wednesday 3rd June - PETER HASELDINE will present a show featuring trolleybuses in Switzerland in the early 1970s, when systems still had individualistic fleets of vehicles, unlike today's uniformity.

Wednesday 10th June - PAUL NICHOLSON from Australia, an NTA member since 1967, will present a show on the subject of his Retirement Travels since 2003, with a strong emphasis on San Francisco but ranging from Solingen to Valparaiso.

Wednesday 17th June - MICHAEL RUSSELL will present a review of trolleybuses in the Donbass region of Ukraine. If you like your trolleybuses in the company of heavy industry and colliery slag heaps, this is the show for you!

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

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.
