Magazine > Tramway Review: updated 15 May 2013
Published quarterly it includes articles on the history of tramways in Britain. The scope is being extended to the history of foreign tramways, especially those which were influenced by Great Britain, and European tramways likely to be familiar to the British traveller.
Each issue includes a lively letters column and reviews of recently published books about tramway history.
Tramway Review is essential reading for the transport historian and anyone interested in the development of tramways. Much can be learnt from history, if only to avoid mistakes that have been made in the past.
