Formed in 1963, the NTA is the foremost society in the UK for trolleybus enthusiasts as well as those professionally involved with the manufacture and operation of trolleybuses and their associated infrastructure.
The aims of the Association are to promote the recording and study of trolleybus operation in the UK and throughout the world and the preservation of historic vehicles. In pursuance of these aims, the NTA publishes "Trolleybus Magazine" and books about trolleybus systems and owns five historic trolleybuses, which it is in the process of restoring to operating condition for display at museums.
The Association's journal 'Trolleybus Magazine', which is sent free to all members, has established a high reputation for accuracy of content and quality of presentation.
Regular meetings are held in London on subjects covering all aspects of trolleybus operation.
The NTA Sales department has a selection of the latest books about trolleybuses as well as backnumber issues of "Trolleybus Magazine".
