A Reading trolleybus at the Wokingham Road terminus (2)
This photo, taken in fading daylight, shows a 1950 Sunbeam three-axle trolleybus with Park Royal 68-seater bodywork at the Wokingham Road terminus of route 17, at the junction with the B3350 (Church Road/Wilderness Road). Trolleybus operation in Reading was to finish on the following day ie 3rd November 1968. However, route 17 has remained unchanged over the decades, although it no longer runs along Broad Street in Reading town centre,as it is now pedestrianised.
