David Gladwin’s latest transport book, his
28th, concentrates on Britain’s traditional tramways. They were the mainstay of
urban travel from the end of the nineteenth century through to post world war
II operations. Even today, they are still in everyday use in a few locations,
including Blackpool and The Isle of Man.
David’s unashamedly nostalgic book looks at
all aspects of tramways including track design and laying, vehicle design and
development and staffing operations in war and peace. The story shows the sad
decline and demise of a cheap and efficient method of transport and concludes
with a glimpse of preserved trams and tramway museums.
The text is heavily illustrated with many previously unpublished black and white and colour illustrations.
