The Fall And Rise Of The Tram DVD Product Description

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.

A century ago the tram was used by people in cities and towns all around the British Isles. From London to Liverpool, Blackpool to Glasgow, the sound of steel on steel was a part of everyday life, but by the early sixties the vast majority had disappeared and the golden era of the tram seemed to be at an end.Now, however, a new generation of tramways has appeared, ensuring that this beautiful and efficient form of transport thrives once more. This brand new DVD traces the rise, fall and rise again of the passenger street tram in Britain. It begins with the introduction of the horse tram by the American George Francis Train to Birkenhead in 1860 and then explores the story of the tram from horse, to steam, to electrified tramcar and the rapid growth of trams at the turn of the 20th century. It charts the gradual demise of the first generation of trams after the Great War and their complete disappearance from the urban transport network in the 1960s, to their resurgence in the 1990s in Manchester. The film also features the latest £100 million tramway system opened in Blackpool in 2012.HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: The Great Orme Tramway A trip on Blackpool s new Bombardier Flexity 2 Tramway Behind the scenes with TfL s London Tramlink, including a visit to the depot A visit to the National Tramways Museum at Crich
