This new fifth edition of the popular LRTA handbook, the first edition of which was published in 1964, encapsulates the systems and operations covered in the previous publications but has been expanded to include the new installations in Lisboa and Porto. It also provides wider coverage of the trolleybuses, thus providing a comprehensive overview of electric street traction in Portugal. Whereas previous editions have been of a relatively small format, it was decided from the outset that with the volume of material available, this new publication would not be a handbook, but a full-blown guide in order to do justice to the subject and provide a comprehensive overview of what continues to be a fascinating country for the transport enthusiast. All of this has resulted in a considerable increase in pages from 34 in the first edition and 92 in the fourth edition to some 328 in this edition. The chapters have been authored by a team of distinguished tramway experts from Portugal, the UK and The Netherlands.

A4 softback, 328 pages, 400+ black & white and colour pictures and 57 maps.
