Brand New Book

This book is a huge and fascinating guide to trolleybus minatures and models, and is packed full with colour and black and white photographs of the vehicles themselves.

After four years of research, acquisition and compiling, collaborators Ashley Bruce and Gottfried Kure have produced a near definitive work on the obscure and yet surprisingly nostalgic subject of the Trolleybus in miniature. The book covers why so many should find such a topic to be so evocative, looks at the industrial relevance of company display models, examines exhibition models in museums, delves into attempts to recreate moving trolleybuses in miniature, catalogues commercial motorised model trolleybuses, includes 23 national trolleybus histories from 1882 to the present day, references 226 full sized prototypes, introduces 282 producers and makers, and lists over 1280 marketed, adapted and one-off models from around the world! The result is an encyclopedia of the worlds trolleybuses through the ages, seen as they once were and how they now exist in minature.

The condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
