WALSALL TROLLEYBUSES 1931-1970 ISBN 9781848684645
by David Harvey
This is the story of Walsall's trolleybus system, from its opening in 1931 through to its eventual closure in October 1970, presented in a fascinating collection of photographs. David Harvey takes us through the geography of the area, social change, development, expansion and the effects of demands on the fleet during World War II. He shows us how 1952 saw an expansion of the trolleybus system and that further routes were constructed to serve the new post-war housing developments. During the 1960s further expansion plans were abandoned when Walsall Corporation were taken over by West Midlands PTE, which ran the service until October 1970 when it was finally closed
