Description:
This is the fourth book in a series that covers the history of the tram systems of the British Isles post-war.

Peter Waller examines the history of the tramways in Ireland, Wales and on the Isle of Man. With three different legislative frameworks, the history of the systems covered are very different – from the surviving horse tramway at Douglas on the Isle of Man through to the new Luas system operating in Dublin.

With an overview that provides the background to all of the tramways that once operated – plus the only tramway in the Channel Islands – alongside a comprehensive account of those systems that survived after 1945, the book is a fascinating portrait of the changing streetscapes of cities like Belfast and Cardiff as well as the remarkable survivor post-war, such as the Bessbrook & Newry and the Llandudno & Colwyn Bay.

Fully illustrated throughout with mono and colour illustrations – many of which have never been published before – as well as system maps, the book will be of interest to all with a history of trams – past and present – in the British Isles.
