filed on: 27.02.2006 (27th Feb 2006)
In an attempt to take the world record for the largest number of people on board a trolleybus, 251 people boarded the double-articulated trolleybus (Hess/Kiepe lighTram3 199, aka TPG 783) on Saturday (25th) at Pestalozzi-Denkmal (see also announcement: 11.01.2006). An entry into the Guinness Book of Records is not yet confirmed. The current record holder is a Leipzig bus that held 200 people.
On the Yahoogroups Trolleybus Group, it is reported that the Russian type SVARZ TS could nominally carry 224 and that 402 have been observed.
