I thought that as a thread had already opened elsewhere regarding AR autobus ,that a seperate thread should be opened for Ar trolleybus. To kick of I am attaching an article " Ar Swansong " from Trolleybus Magazine ,this article appeared in there issue NO.258 Nov-Dec 2004 .
I will try and upload more photos etc in next little while.

Charley,

Thanks for the post.

I really am loving the trucks, busses, marine and industrial forum.

When I see info on vehicles like these trolleybusses, I often wonder if Alfa also made GTA versions :D

Seriously though, a very interesting section. Plus, more of the marque history is being gathered and recorded in one place for the future.

Hi Stefano,
You might be interested in the attached site with some interesting photos of a FIAT/ALFA-ROMEO/CGE trolebus undergoing restoration.

Trolebuses Rosarinos
Hello Charley and Stefano;

Here in Montevideo we have Two trolleybuses, an Alfa Romeo and an Ansaldo San Giorgio, under restoration. You can see some historical pics in my site "Trolebuses de Montevideo" http://trolebusesmontevideo.tripod.com/portada.html . If you want pics of the restorations, please contact me.

Here are it!

This is the Alfa Romeo-FIAT-CGE Montevideo (unofficial name of this model) former AMDET 2188:













Now the Ansaldo San Giorgio, originally AMDET 2298, passed in 1975 to COOPTROL (Trolleybus Cooperative) In service until 1992, when the system was closed:

Yes, you may, and in fact, you're helping us. This 77 minutes DVD was made to catch founds to support the trolleybuses restoration. So, if somebody is interested, only must contact me.
