This list is intended to record surviving exported trolleybuses based on a British-built chassis. The vehicles will have been exported either second-hand, or new with either with British bodies, or had bodies built locally in their destination countries.

The listing is arranged in order of (1) Chassis manufacturer, (2) Country, (3) Chassis model (i.e. Bristol L5, then L6, or Tiger TS7 then TS8 etc.), (4) original operator in alphabetical order. Then each entry shows original operator, original fleet number, subsequent owners / fleet numbers if applicable, chassis type, chassis number in brackets {__} if known, body type (and age if different from chassis age), body number in brackets {__} if known, chassis build date, registration number, ownership details.

Abbreviations are listed at the end. The bodywork abbreviations are in the standard format, i.e. 'B', 'C' or 'DP' (for Bus, Coach or Dual-Purpose), followed by the seating capacity, then by the door position 'F', 'C', 'R' or 'D' (for Front, Centre, Rear or Dual). The prefix 'U' means a wartime Utility body, 'F' means a full-front, and 'O' means Open Top.

For the latest additions (i.e. a bus that was always around, but I've only just found out about it !) look for the symbol. For any significant information updates see the symbol.

Entries with links will usually connect to a photograph of the vehicle elsewhere on this site, or to information on another site.
