The original title of the book: Spirit of British Trams: A Concise History
began operating in 1832.However, it was an American,
George Train, who opened Britain's first true permanent
street tramway, in Birkenhead on 30 August
1860.The Edwardian era saw a mass explosion in the
building and electrifying of tram routes in towns and
cities throughout Britain, and by 1910, there were more
than 300 tramways, nearly half of them opened in the
first decade of the twentieth century. By 1914, the
combined London area tram operators comprised the
largest tram network in Europe. However, the First
WorldWar called a halt to the expansion of tramways,
as tens of thousands of drivers, conductors and other
staff joined the armed forces.
The writing on the wall for trams had by then
begun to appear, with only five new lines opening
during 1910-13. The motor omnibus had begun to
arrive and offered far greater flexibility, especially in
places where tram routes had been found to be
unprofitable. The 1930s marked the start of a mass
abandonment of tramways as road traffic increased.
Around the beginning of the 1950s trams became
the target of preservationists, and today major historic
collections are held at the Crich TramwayVillage, the
Beamish Open Air Museum and the Seaton Tramway
to name but three. Commercial trams have also made
a major comeback in Britain's cities.Worsening road
congestion following soaring levels of car ownership
saw planners look again at the tram concept, and draw
up several light rail schemes. Far from being an
anachronism, such developments suggest that street
trams may well have been ahead of their time.
Expert Robin Jones re-tells the story of Britain's
trams. In more than 60 images and with a sharp and
incisive text, Spirit of BritishTrams is the ideal brief guide,
in Halsgrove's new collectible, pocket-size format.
