I may be fooling myself, but it appears that the licence plate on the bus in post 19 picture 2, is the same as the one in post 20 picture 2. A2006

They look like they could be the same bus.

Very cool stuff!

Last week me and my team managed to discover the rear part of this articulated trolleybus in remarkably good condition! What is believed to bee the last remaining Alfa-Romeo articulated trolleybus in the world have, beleieve it or not, survived outside in the elements for almost 60 years! , the bus was taken out of service in 1955.

There will bee a preservation and possibly a rebuild!

May post a picture soon!

Super, congratulations. This gives me the hope that one day the Alfa Romeo community will see what kind of bigger cars Alfa Romeo built after WW2.

Taday the front part of the bus arrived to the National Transport Museum in Malmköping Sweden, soon to be joined by the rear part. They have been separated since circa 1968.

Re the number plates above, the A 2006 number plate is a temporary/interim number plate of the type commonly used in Sweden at that time, that bus was later registered A 74054, our bus is A 74055.

As i turned out that the man who bought the bus back in 1968 was still alive we spoked with him and he told us we could come and pick up some of the seats and the doors for the rear part of the bus if we where interested! Ofcourse we was!

He had kept the doors and seats in a shed all those years because "they could be good to have some day"!!

He also had a spare wheel and when we where abuot to leave he handed over the front enblem which he had kept in his office all those years!

What a hero!

I just came across this thread - what a super-cool story.

I hope the restoration has started and is going well. Are you also going to be restoring the motor(s?) and the drive-train back to operational condition? That would be neat.

Keep us up-to-date with pictures.
