Once the largest tramway network in the British Isles, London's tramways had belonged to a range of operators until the London Passenger Transport Board was created in July 1933, and this resulted in a great variety of tramcars being operated in the Metropolis. This is one of four volumes to cover the history of electric tramcar operation in the city, concentrating on routes to the north and north-west of the River Thames. This area was dominated by the Metropolitan Electric Tramways and was largely converted to trolleybus operation during the 1930s.Locations featured include: - Aldersgate - Alexandra Palace- Barnet- Bloomsbury - Canons Park- Cricklewood Broadway- Enfield- Hammersmith- Hampstead- Hanwell- Highgate Village- Holborn - Holloway Road- Kentish Town- Kew Bridge- Kingsway Subway- Manor House- Moorgate - Muswell Hill- North Finchley- Paddington- Parliament Hill Fields- Rosebery Avenue- Seven Sisters Road- Shepherds Bush- Southall- Sudbury- The Angel, Islington- The Wellington- Tottenham Court Road- Uxbridge - Willesden- Winchmore Hill- Wood Green

The second of two volumes covering the history of tramcar operation in Glasgow. The book narrates the story of the city's impressive network from the immediate post-war years, when the system was regarded as one of the most secure in the country, through the 1950s, when a change of policy initially saw a limited conversion policy instituted before complete abandonment was adopted, to the early 1960s when the final services were operated. This volume focuses on locations in the northern half of the city including City Centre, Clydebank, Keppochhill Road and University.

Volume three in this series focuses on the basic principles of light pulse compression through chirp generation and compensation inside and outside the laser cavity. Traces the developmental of light railways from before the 1896 Light Railways Act, and places the failure of the subsequent expansion in the context of financial problems of the rail industry as a whole, due most especially to the concurrent rise of motor traffic. Assesses the impact on the remote areas served, and follows the form of transportation to its terminal decline between the wars. For historians and rail buffs. Distributed by St. Martin's.

From the horse-drawn trams of the nineteenth century to the larger electric models of the early twentieth, this reliable form of public transport revolutionised town travel by making it affordable enough for working people to use. From the 1930s, the rise of the trolleybus, which also picked up power from overhead cables but ran without expensive tracks, looked set to supersede the tram – but ultimately, by the 1950s, both fell victim to motor buses and private cars. However, since the 1980s the environmental benefits of light rail have encouraged a growing comeback for trams on our crowded and polluted city streets. Using beautiful contemporary photographs, this is the fascinating story of the rise, fall and revival of this everyday, yet sometimes controversial, mode of urban transport.
