The Brighton fleet of 3ft 6in trams was to survive virtually until the outbreak of World War II, indeed replacement trams were still being constructed in the 1930s, but a joint traffic arrangement set up in conjunction with one of the local bus operators saw the trams replaced by trolleybus and bus. Alongside the trams, Brighton also played host to Volk’s Electric Railway – one of the world’s pioneering electric railways and still operational today.
The Lost Tramways of England series documents the tram networks which were at the heart of many of Britain's growing towns and cities from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century. An informative, accessible and portable resource for the tram enthusiast as well as the general reader, and a superb souvenir or gift for visitors past and present.
