Tram Enzyclopadie: Geschichte und Technik der Strassenbahn (EK)

2 In Stock

In the early years of tramways in the 19th century, there were few alternative forms of powered transport in urban areas, so the tramway spread to cities around the world. With the introduction of cars and buses, which did not require expensive tracks and overhead wires, many cities closed their tram systems. However, in the environmentally conscious era of today, many cities are reviving tramways and existing systems are being expanded.

This book describes the history of the tram and examines the technology involves in electric tramways, both today and in the past.

Tram-Enzyklopadie: Geschichte und Technik der Strassenbahn provides a comprehensive history of the tramway from the earliest years through to the present day.

A full list of tramway systems around the world is also included, containing details such as gauge, opening year, number of lines, length of the system and number of vehicles. Well-illustrated throughout with colour and black & white photographs and maps. German text. Hardback. 160 pages.
