Regional Tramways - The North West of England Post 1945


This is the third book in the 'Regional Tramways' series that covers the history of tramway operation in the British Isles. Focusing on North-West England, the book provides an overview of the history of tramways in the region from the 1860s, when one of the pioneering horse tramways that predated the Tramways Act of 1870 operated in Birkenhead (the first tramway to operate in the British Isles), though to the closures of the last traditional tramways (Stockport and Liverpool) in 1951 and 1957, respectively. It also looks at one great survivor the tramway in Blackpool that, fully modernised, continues to operate in the 21st century. Concentrating on the systems that survived into 1945 Blackburn, Blackpool, Bolton, Bury, Darwen, Liverpool, Manchester, Oldham, Salford, SHMD and Stockport, this book provides a comprehensive narrative, detailing the history of these operations from 1945 onwards, with full fleet lists, maps and details of route openings and closures.
