David O'Conner inherited his Uxbridge Trolleybus Terminal layout from late Grahame Hawkyard who was a former MBF Chairman for over 25 years.

The Uxbridge layout represents a typical 1950's scene and includes a good representation of the London Transport vehicle around during that era. The layout measures 2ft x 2ft.

The unique London Transport trolleybus 754, and its experimental folding doors are clearly visible in this shot.

Another 607 trolleybus swings into the Uxbridge terminal stand.

The layouts overhead wiring can clearly be seen in this photographs along with a varied selection of trolleybuses.

A number of Green Line & Country Area vehicles can be seen in this display. Uxbridge was a busy meeting point for an large number of red & green routes.
