Trolleybus and tram fun at Carlton Colville transport museum
THE East Anglia Transport Museum at Carlton Colville, near Lowestoft, is promising a bus load of fun over the bank holiday week.

The London Event 2012 marks the 50th anniversary when the capital lost it trolleybuses.
Among the vehicles on display is London's first trolleybus from 1931.
To mark the 60th anniversary of London's last tram, the museum will also have its London tram from 1858 on display.
