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.

During the history of Britain’s electric tramcar fleets, many thousands were manufactured of which the vast majority saw out their operational life with a single owner. However, for several hundred there was to be a second – if not, in certain cases, a third – career with a new operator. Almost from the dawn of the electric era in the late 19th century tramcars were loaned or bought and sold between operators. The reasons for this were multifarious. Sometimes the aspirations of the original owners for traffic proved wildly optimistic and the fleet was downsized to reflect better the actual passenger levels. War was a further cause as operators sought to strengthen their fleets to cater for unexpectedly high level of demand or to replace trams destroyed by enemy action. For other operators, modernization represented an opportunity to sell older cars while, certainly from the 1930s, a number of operators – such as Aberdeen, Leeds and Sunderland – took advantage of the demise of tramways elsewhere to supplement their fleet with trams that were being withdrawn but which still had many years of useful operational life in them. The process was to continue right through to the mid-1950s when Glasgow took advantage of the demise of the once-extensive Liverpool system to purchase a number of the streamlined bogie bogie cars that were built in the late 1930s. In this book the author provides a pictorial history – with detailed captions – to the many electric trams that were to operate with more than one tramway during the period up to the closure of the closure of the Glasgow system in 1962.

Is any disaster really forgotten? It is never forgotten by the survivors who lived through the trauma. It is never forgotten by the emergency services who tried to save the day. It is never forgotten by the relatives of those who never came home. Britain’s Lost Tragedies Uncovered is a look at the tragedies and disasters that may not have stayed in public memory, but are no less terrible than their more famous counterparts. From a late-nineteenth-century family massacre in London to two separate fatal crashes at Dibbles Bridge in Yorkshire, and the worst-ever aviation show crash in post-war Farnborough to the horrifying Barnsley Public Hall disaster – here are twenty-three accounts of true devastation and stunning bravery. They are tales that deserve to be remembered.
