TRAMWAY REVIEW: A 70th Anniversary Retrospective


In 1950 the LRTA’s predecessor, The Light Railway Transport League, decided to publish historical material relating to first-generation tramways in the British Isles separately from the house journal “Modern Tramway”, which was featuring more and more good news on tramway renewal in continental Europe and some other countries. Thus was born the historical supplement “Tramway Review”, which has grown in the intervening years to be a full magazine with expanded world-wide coverage of interesting aspects of tramway history.

The seventieth anniversary of this journal is being celebrated in 2020 with the publication of an anthology put together by the current editor of TR, Martin Dibbs and prolific LRTA author Geoffrey Skelsey. “Tramway Review – A 70th Anniversary Retrospective” will be a 144-page A5-size booklet available towards the end of September, priced at £14 plus postage & packing.

LRTA members will qualify for a 10% discount on the cover price and those who subscribe to “Tramway Review” will be able to buy a copy for a specially reduced price.

Available from the LRTA Shop towards the end September.
