The trolleybus is about to reverse into Hampden Street before starting off for a clockwise circuit of the Eston route. Taken just a couple of weeks before closure of the system.

The concept of a bus reversing on what was still a main road would simply not be acceptable in modern traffic, but was still quite a common feature of bus operation before the advent of one-person-operation.

This significantly urban location has since been obliterated by the modern A66 interchange.

This is one of a series of views featuring buses in the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
