Visiting Foxton Trolleybus Museum?

Postby Rick R » Wed Dec 18, 2013 8:52 pm

Hi All,

I'm hopping over the ditch for holidays soon and would like to have a look at the Foxton Trolleybus Museum. Can anyone let me know what the deal is, the last I heard it was closed to the public.

Thanks in advance.
Enjoy.

The Foxton Bus Museum is no longer open to the public after the death of its owner Ian Little some years ago and then his wife Chrissie Little in 2013, and their Son Wayne in 2012.

The trolleybus overhead wires are still in place around Foxton but their future is in doubt as there are local Council plans for a new Development around the Windmill.

there are plans afoot that Malcolm Little is going to look at doing work in Foxton about once a month and wants help to make this happen a couple of buses will be run around the circuit this call went out a couple of weeks ago and generated some big intrest...
