London Meetings

10th January Pierre Debano:- The history of the trolleybus in Nancy:-
Click Here (It should be available until 17th January).

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.
