PETER WALLER    Book Number: 91734    Product format: Hardback

Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Edinburgh Trams, Glasgow and Preservation, this big glamorous volume concentrates on the big city systems that survived WWII. It provides a comprehensive narrative detailing a history of these operations from 1945 onwards with full fleet lists, maps and details of route openings and closures supported by almost 200 illustrations both in black and white and colour, many never before published. See the first horse-drawn services linking stations through to the closure of the last traditional tramway, Glasgow, in 1962. A number of horse cars were retained after the conversion just in case of a failure in the cable system. One of the more unusual trams to operate in Scotland was the single petrol-fuelled car operated by Stirling & Bridge of Allan Tramways Company Ltd between 1913 and 1920. Throughout the volume are fascinating glimpses of people, bold advertising, shop fronts, streets and houses and useful maps of the networks. Plus posters and tram tickets reproduced in colour, truly a nostalgic collection and information on where it is still possible to see Scotland's surviving first-generation trams in preservation. 144 very large glossy pages, illus.
