Twilight Trolleybuses December 2008

The Sandtoft Trolleybus Museum, located near Doncaster just off the M180 motorway, has a large selection of preserved trolleybuses.   They host several events during the year but one of the most evocative is the twilight running that is held in mid-November.   In 2007 there were three twilight representatives from Huddersfield, Derby and Nottingham and those hardy people that endured the bighting wind were treated to a memorable early winter's afternoon of nostalgia.
