The top two pictures show monochrome front and rear views of trolleybus 201 when it was displayed at the Montague Motor Museum in Beaulieu, Hampshire, between 1960 and 1972. These two pictures were taken on 24 March 1963. No.201 was Portsmouth's first trolleybus, and was delivered in 1934: it was an AEC661T with English Electric bodywork. The third picture shows the same vehicle, photographed on Kodachrome at Beaulieu on 20 September 1964.

The bottom view shows the same vehicle when displayed at the City of Portsmouth Preserved Transport Depot at Broad Street, Old Portsmouth. The picture was taken on 9 June 1991. The Museum was closed for redevelopment in 2003, and trolleybus 201 was subsequently moved to the Milestones Museum in Basingstoke, where it is currently displayed.
