When Ashton Corporation decided to replace the trams on its share of this tramway with trolleybuses, it asked Oldham Corporation to do the same. Oldham Corporation agreed, and acquired two trolleybuses, being Oldham's share of a combined order for ten.
The Oldham trolleybus system was closed on 3 September 1926 after just over one year in operation, and was replaced by motor buses. However, the Ashton Corporation continued to run trolleybuses on its section of the route for much longer.,
Neither of the former Oldham trolleybuses is recorded as having survived.
