Brian Patton, A4 softback, 180pp, covers coloured both sides,
Sections cover trams in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia, the Americas, and 2 sections entitled Export of double-deckers from the UK, and The role of the double-decker.
“Patton has searched far and wide for his material, down to the photographic record of the only double-decker ever to run in Zurich. The date of operation was I April 1912 and even the reputedly dour Swiss have a sense of humour, I suspect.” [Tramfare] “The illustrations are well reproduced and include some fascinating, animated views from the impressive but seldom-illustrated collection of Pam Eaton. This book endeavours to be a complete survey of overseas double-deck electric cars and necessarily only an overview of other means of propulsion, but it is unlikely ever to superseded except by an updated edition by the same author. It well merits a place on the bookshelf of any tramway student with a catholic interest in this form of design. [Tramways & Urban Transit]
