Trolley bus driver and expert rides around his garden in a model trolley bus - brilliant!
Reading, Berkshire and Great Bookham, Surrey.
Various shots show a 1961 Sunbeam F4A with Burlingham body trolley bus driver Peter Lepine-Smith setting off from a depot and driving a trolley bus on one of the few remaining trolley circuits in Britain at the time, although it was due to close shortly. He picks up his wife and two little daughters from a bus stop and takes them for a spin around the town.
As Peter changes lines with a pole above the trolley bus, we cut to a shot of him doing the same for a model trolley bus in his back garden in Great Bookham, Surrey. This amazing model stands at about five foot and runs on lines around the garden.
Peter stops at a little bus stop to pick up his two daughters who clamber in the back; it does look rather cramped for the driver, but commentator informs us the bus can carry four adults or six children!
Note: on file is a magazine article about Peter and his model trolley bus plus correspondence.
