It was built in 10 instances in 1938-1939 at the YaAZ (Yaroslavskiy avtomobilnyi zavod; Yaroslavl automobile plant). All the machines worked in Moscow. But because he had hard to solve deficiencies (he turned out too high for our contact networks, because of what ceilings were very low; in addition, in winter they were difficult in drive) from idea to doubledecker refused - they worked on the line until 1953. None of them to the present day have not survived (unfortunately). :(

By the way, I think it is the most beautiful Soviet trolley-bus. :)

I thought it looked rather British. From a Russian site, hence the odd English: In June 1938 first JaTB-3 trolleybus was delivered to Moscow and was put in revenue service in September 1938 and the whole batch of 10 was in service by October 1939. The JaTB-3 was a direct copy of the AEC 664T/English Electric trolleybus, built for Moscow in 1937, however there were minor changes in design: the front windows on the upper deck were not opened (the AEC/EE trolleybus was later modified in the same way), the design of the front marker lights on the roof was changed. First JaTB-3s were delivered in the same blue and cream livery as AEC/EE, later deliveres had a few variations in location of cream area. Started from trolleybus 1010 (in May 1940) the JaTB-3s received a front doors for better crowd circulation. All Moscow double-decker's survived the war, first of them was withdrawn in 1946 and despite the wooden bodies of the JaTB-3s were strengthened in 1945-47 (according to some reports, a few BUT 9641 chassis were imported to Soviet Union after the war), the last of them was withdrawn from service in 1953.
