Thank you Marcel. Kingston-upon-Hull-am I the last to use it's proper title-is one of my favourite cities which get's untold crap news putting her and her local people down at every slight interval. Not what you think folks. Holderness road is lively and gointo town for a good night out with folks who look after you. Anyway K-U-H corporation and K-U-H City Fire Brigade are my interests. Saying that, does anyone know if any of the Coronation class Trollybuses are in preservation?

The City of Kingston upon Hull is a wonderful vibrant City with plenty of life both in the day and at night. They also have an established transport museum which has a substantial archive. On top of this, there have been several books published on the History of this operator (and East Yorkshire) which are relatively easy to find. They cover the period from Horse Trams to the take over by Cleveland Transit in 1994.
The three Crowns logo on the side dates back to the Middle Ages. I too am interested in both the Bus and Fire Brigade of this wonderful City,the place is only two hours from Teesside, and well worth a look. There are no Hull Trolleybuses of any type preserved to my knowledge. Local Legend has it that the Council wouldn't release any for sale, preferring to scrap them instead! Another local Legend tells of the re-claimed Dock area is filled in with old buses and telephone boxes!

Many thanks Chris. Whatever happened to the Canadian farebox that Trollybus 116 carried? September 9th 1974. How many buses were lost in the Short Street fire? The prestige book published by Venture has a marvellous photo of Kingston-upon-Hull's ERF PHP at an incident where other buses have been torched.

Though not the best of shots, I did manage to get a white Kingston-upon-Hull phone box and East Yorks bus. Am sure someone can manage to do better although there aren't too many of the old style white phone boxes left and less still on a bus route.
