The original trolleybus

This model represents the only trolleybus that ever ran on Hove's streets, a Cedes-Stoll vehicle with a Dodson body. The bus was used for a trial in 1914 (complete with all the required overhead wiring), but the trial was was not considered successful, and the trolleybus was sold on to Keighley.
