Book Description Transit Australia Publishing, Sydney, NSW, Australia., 2010. Soft Cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. First Edition. 208 pages colour and b/w photos - Ian Cooper, an acknowledged devotee of urban transit, and one of the Australia's leading urban transport historians, has prepared Tasmania's Trolley Buses after researching the subject for the past 30 years. Tasmania's Trolley Buses details the history of the many proposals for trolley buses in Hobart and Launceston and the development of the Hobart network from a single route in 1935 and the Launceston network from a single route in 1951. Tasmania eventually operated 28% of the Australia's trolley buses, with Launceston being the only regional city in the country operating trolley buses and the Tasmanian Metropolitan Transport Trust became Australia's largest trolley bus operator with 93 units. Tasmania's Trolley Buses is a 208 page book with 243 photographs, accompanied by detailed captions, of which 137 are in colour, plus 10 maps and diagrams. Also illustrated are examples of timetables, trade advertisements and technical specifications of the trolley buses. Almost all photographs are published for the first time. Many streetscape images include trams, petrol buses and diesel buses, thus adding to the record of the State's urban transport scene. A significant feature of the book is the inclusion of 27 pages of photographs illustrating trolley bus operations, route by route, or district by district. Almost all these street scenes are in colour and are supplemented by detailed captions. Bookseller Inventory # TA-05
