FJW616 is Wolverhampton trolleybus 616, a Sunbeam F4 built 1949 with Park Royal body and on display inside the museum at Wythall
Wolverhampton chose in the 1960s to scrap its trolleybus system and 616 retired in November 1963. It was presented to the Railway Preservation Society, Hednesford, and was stored at Alton in Hampshire for many years. To safeguard the future of this classic example of Wolverhampton's post-war trolleybus fleet, the RPS passed it to the Wythall Trust's predecessor in 1975. The Trust soon moved 616 to secure, undercover accommodation in north-west England and there it remained until arriving at Wythall in July 2004.
