Railways and Tramways in the City of Leeds


The first comprehensive look at rail in the City of Leeds from its beginnings in 1834 to the present day. It examines both passenger and freight traffic in and around the city, from the growth and development of early railways and tramways through to the subsequent decline, the abandonment of the tramways in 1959 and the savage Beeching cuts of the 1960s. Post-war transport planning is highlighted, demonstrating the bias in favour of road building. 160 pages softback with 285 black & white photos.
