9781473823853: Regional Tramways - Scotland: 1940-1950s

This is the first of a new series of books that will cover the history of tramway operation in the British Isles.

Focusing on Scotland, this book provides an overview of the history of tramways north of the border from the 1940s, when the first horse-drawn service linking Inchture village to Inchture station opened, through to the closure of the last traditional tramway – Glasgow – in 1962.

Concentrating on the big city systems that survived the Second World War – Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow – the book provides a comprehensive narrative, detailing the history of these operations from 1945 onwards, with full fleet lists, maps and details of route openings and closures.

The story is supported by some 200 illustrations, both color and black and white, many of which have never been published before, that portray the trams that operated in these cities and the routes on which they operated. Bringing the story up-to-date, the book also examines the only second-generation tramway yet to be built in Scotland – the controversial system recently constructed in Edinburgh – as well as informing readers where it is still possible to see Scotland’s surviving first-generation trams in preservation.
