By Ray Deacon 2013
From the author of Innsbruck's Alpine Tramways (and of a book published in 1980 on the trams of the Dutch capital) this new work tells the story of the Amsterdam network right up to the present day with a wide range of topics covered in depth from the electrification of the horse tramways through the transfer to municipal ownership and the closely-fought battles to retain trams in the 1950s and 60s to the 'Lijnen voor Morgen' report that transformed the system into a model for other cities to follow.

A detailed description of all the tram routes and the wide variety of rolling stock used over the years, along with numerous detailed maps and a rich variety of previously-unpublished pictures makes this a 'must have' book.

A4 softback; 264 pages, fully-illustrated mostly in colour
