London Meetings

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 19th April - Dave Hall presents: Views of various UK systems in the 1950s from the Stanley King archive.

  • Wednesday 17th May - Keith Farrow presents: Trolleybuses at Home and Overseas.

  • Wednesday 21st June - John Parkin presents an A-Z in pictures of British and European systems visited.
    (Please note change of programme owing to the indisposition of the original speaker).

  • Wednesday 20th September - John Parkin is seeking a speaker for this meeting; please contact him if you can offer a programme. We shall also need a locum tenens to introduce the meeting as John will be unavailable on this date. Could one of our regular attendees please volunteer?

  • Wednesday 18th October - Jeff Tucker will present a programme on Eastern European systems. (This is the meeting postponed from 15th March).

TrolleyZoom Meetings

TrolleyZoom meetings have now been suspended and Peter Haseldine has relinquished his role in arranging and moderating the meetings. There is a feeling that they have run their course but the Board recognises the vital role they have played in allowing overseas members, and those UK members residentially distant from London, to take part in NTA activities.

If any member is interested in taking on the role of TrolleyZoom meetings co-ordinator and moderator, please initially contact the Chairman, Mike Russell on :-

In the absence of a willing volunteer, it is likely that the TrolleyZoom programme will cease.

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.
