Hi, I am from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  In June 2008, our stupid city council voted to scrap the trolley-bus network by 2010, and then through a haste decision in 2009, our trolley-bus system was shut down abruptly in May.  I have learned that as many as 28 trolleys in excellent working condition were purchased by Plovidiv.  I am wondering if these classic American style GMC Fishbowl bodied, Brown Broveri electrical system equipped trolleys have been operating in Plovdiv now?  Please post some pictures of them.  Very much appreciated.
Hi, I'm Troley lover from Plovdiv, Bulgaria. I'll say you that these trolleys are still a port of Burgas(Bulgaria) and we do not know when it will arrive. If they do not come to 30th January the state will confiscate them.

It will be really sad if these trolley-buses do get confisticated by the state, especially consider they are still in such excellent condition.  Why is the transit agency of Plovdiv not coming to claim their prize?  Is it because of any shipping fee over due, ware house storage over due, or import tax over due?

OK, January 30th has come and gone, are the trolleys still in Port Burgas?  Have they been confisticated by the state yet?

I have read on www.trolleymotion.com that the price paid for each vehicle was 1300 euros.

Part of Maritsa newspaper article

And trolleybuses those to come, no place to move in this resized transport scheme, said Angel Batakliev owner of former municipal enterprise "Public Transport". At the moment of the 19 standing vehicles, 8 vehicles are in the garage. Of those who run on the lines are at a total loss, because there are no passengers, he added. Another 28 Canadian trolley, stand in the port of Burgas. The company, which we supply contract is not fulfilled its obligation to provide spare parts, said Angel Batakliev. Trolleybuses were impounded pending the result of litigation. Other cars had to take off from Germany late last year but were delayed.
