The last day of Reading Corporation trolleybus operation on the 4th November 1968, VRD185 fleet No 185 displaying appropriate stickers on the side.
Sold to TRTB after withdrawal, as can be seen there were very large crowds in attendance despite the weather being very cold.
With several other members of the then Eastbourne Lion Preservation Group we drove up from Eastbourne in the ex Eastbourne Corporation Leyland Lion JK8418 enjoyed the day but not the lack of heating.
