Christchurch Trolleybus No 210 at Ferrymead Heritage Park

October 28, 2013

This long weekend, the Ferrymead Heritage Park had lots of transport events – you could ride on a steam train, a trolley bus, a tram and even a steam tram. I had a lot of fun jumping on and off all of the different rides that were available. While there, I checked out the Trolley Bus shed – and they have lots of them there being restored. The trolleybus parked in front of the shed has been restored and is now one of the oldest operating trolleybuses in the world.

Inside the Trolleybus. What a lot of work it must be to restore these – definitely a labour of love though for the volunteers at Ferrymead.

    Looks like the perfect adventure for a holiday weekend! If there was a similar place this close to where I live it would most likely become an annual tradition, but alas the closest place similar is about an hour’s drive away but only has old steam and diesel trains – but still heaps of fun, yes!

  3. Such a beautiful old vehicle oozing so much character and charm.
