Tony Young 2021

This brand-new book from one of the LRTA’s most prolific authors, who was also instrumental in bringing "Metrolink" to Manchester, reviews a whole range of schemes that did not see the light of day. From the early years of first-generation tramways in the UK there have been unfulfilled proposals and the possibility of intriguing links between networks, but Tony Young has listed them all. He also covers the sad tales of indecision and waste relating to second-generation systems that ought now to be in operation in and around Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool and South Hampshire.

Published by the LRTA – A4 softback; 192 pages; 116 colour and 119 black & white pictures; 117 maps.
