As trams and other light rapid transit systems make a comeback in many British cities this volume, the second of three, looks at all the tramways that have operated in the towns and cities of central England, Wales, and Ireland, with lines as far apart as Skegness and Galway. From the 1870s to the 1950s, trams were a common sight in many British towns. From the pioneering Oystermouth Tramroad of 1807 to the up-to-the minute systems of Nottingham and Dublin of 2004, this is a practical and useful tool revealing the tramway lines and networks of the British Isles. Volume One covers southern England (including Greater London and East Anglia) and the Channel Islands. Volume Two covers the counties of central England, and the whole of Wales and Ireland.
