The Trolley Buses. These took the place of the trams in stages during 1939. Here is a trolley on the 46 route (Beaconsfield to Carden School) standing in the same position on 16 August 1956. The trolleys had a short life much less than did the trams. After the war road traffic increased to such an extent that they were considered an obstruction, despite their cheapness, quietness and lack of pollution.
The last trolley ran on Friday 30 June 1961.
