This describes the Glasgow tramways from c.1928-1951 from the viewpoint of a driver and conductor. “I think this is the most fascinating and amusing book on trams I have ever read.” [Publisher]
“This is a dangerous book. Dangerous because once you pick it up you will find it impossible to put down until the end! … Excellent value for money and thoroughly recommended.” [Industrial Heritage]
“The book recalls the day when the tram reigned supreme over most of Clydesdale; it is well illustrated and appendices include extracts from traffic circulars and a full list of fare stages and a glossary. You will enjoy this book and even find the English translation of Auchenshuggle.
