SCT '61
Portsmouth City Operator Index

Showing off its shiny paintwork Portsmouth tower wagon TW2 was attending to the overhead outside McIlroys on London Road in December 1952, having been newly converted from bus 18 RV3412 - a 1933 English Electric bodied Leyland TD2.
Together with similar TW1 RV3411, it served Portsmouth until the mid-60s after the demise of the trolleybuses. Both TW1 and TW2 then entered preservation. TW1 is exhibited at the excellent Milestones Museum in Basingstoke (or at least it was when I last visited)
