A1-class "Diddler" trolleybus No 1, registration HX2756 - trolleybus

This is the very first London trolleybus. It was based at Fulwell trolleybus depot in west London, the only depot dedicated to trolleybus operation and repairs. Trolleybuses were introduced by London United Tramways, which was part of the Underground Group. The design is based on the L.T.-type bus. The type became known as 'diddlers'. In 1948, the early trolleybuses were withdrawn from service because they were worn out and in poor condition. By 1952 most were scrapped, but this Number 1 was preserved by the Museum of British Transport.
