Joseph Tse Yiu-hon and John Prentice updating the original work by the late Peter Atkinson and Alan Williams. 2017

The detailed history of this iconic system published in 1970 is included in this book, but substantially updated to cover the further 40-plus years of change and development on the island.

For many tramway enthusiasts, Hong Kong holds a special fascination due to the extremely British nature of its tramcars, four-wheel double-deckers with a distinctly pre-war feel, though modernisation has brought air-conditioning and a more streamlined look.

A4 softback; 216 pages, 500+ colour and black & white pictures; several maps, diagrams and scale drawings.
