Seven of the former Ipswich system trolleybuses are now preserved. Six of them are at the Ipswich Transport Museum, which is housed in the old Priory Heath trolleybus depot in Cobham Road. The other one is at the Science Museum, Wroughton, Wiltshire.
The Ipswich system remains unique in having a 100%-trolleybus fleet following tram abandonment as well as the unusual combination of green paint and unpainted aluminium side panelling.
