Thanks everyone for your appreciative comments. I apologise for the untidyness of the site at present the editing platform was changed by the provider and it has screwed up much of my layout which I am struggling to put right. Also apologies for the numerous low-lifes, mostly it seems from Russia who are continually assaulting the Guestbook with Cyrillic messages which I cannot decipher but obviously are not relevant to the website at all. I clear them as quickly as I can - please don't be put off from making a genuine bus enthusiast comment if you so wish to.

Mike ? really enjoyed the trip down memory lane, particularly the Willesden pictures. The sight of a 660 stuck outside St Gabriel?s Church (there?s a glimpse of my parents? house in the background) triggered a few thoughts. Jumping the wires there (I have the impression it was mostly a few yards further on at the apex of the bend at the St Gabriel?s Road junction) happened at least two or three times a year. In fact, if you look at the image under magnification ? 400% does it ? and compare the top of the traction pole directly behind the bus with the one that?s further back at the boundary between nos. 160 and 162 Walm Lane, you can see that part of the cast iron ball at the top of the second one is missing. I remember the almighty crash when it was knocked down by the trolley pole, with the trolleybus coming to a halt outside no. 156. As for the turning circle just inside the side road part of Walm Lane at the Chicheley Road junction, it was so tight that drivers gave up trying to use it with booms up and manoeuvred using battery power instead. My own memory of the last day of the 660 route was a line of 645s and 660s stuck at the bottom of Childs Hill. The lead one had reached just a little way up and was sitting there with wheels spinning in the snow. The Routemasters, the next day, had no such problem. You remember the original bluish lighting correctly ? but it came from electric bulbs. The lamps were maintained by crews using tower platforms with two huge wooden wheels, like those at the back of fire engines. The platforms and their trucks were painted in a shiny dark green ? perhaps Borough of Willesden livery, perhaps something else. Do you have any pictures of the 664 Finchley ? Harlesden trolleybus route which shut some six years or so before the 645/660/666? - Max
