Running Day
Sunday 3rd June 2018
50 years after the last
trolleybus departed
An event to commemorate that significant juncture in Reading's transport history.
The running day operated town services as closely as possible to Reading Corporation trolleybus routes 15, 16, 17 and 18 as well as Thames Valley country routes 1, 7 and 12.
The photos on this page were taken in Reading, Caversham and Twyford.
Five Reading trolleybuses have been preserved, (see the Trolleybus Museum, Sandtoft, between Doncaster and Scunthorpe).
