Trolleybus 1 (HX 2756) at Fulwell Bus Depot
This photo shows London Transport trolleybus 1 (HX 2756) which is an AEC 663T with Union Construction Co 56-seater bodywork, being of Class A1 at an Open Day held at Fulwell Bus Depot to mark the 50th Anniversary of the closure of London's trolleybus system in May 1962. It entered service with London United Tramways in January 1931 and was the first of sixty vehicles that were delivered to replace the trams in the Twickenham, Teddington and Kingston areas. This batch was known as "Diddlers" for some unexplained reason. It was withdrawn from service in 1948 and has since been preserved.
