Sheffield: From Tram to Tram-Train


Product Information

Sheffield: From Tram to Tram-Train tells the story of Sheffield’s pioneering light rail systems. It begins with a brief look back at Sheffield’s first tramway that opened way back in 1873. At the time of its closure in 1960, the Sheffield Corporation Tramway was one of very few first-generation tramways still in operation. The book contains details of all the original Sheffield trams that survive in preservation.

It then turns to the Supertram project of the early 1990s, with extensive details of the planning and design of what was then a relatively new concept in the UK. Looks at how Parliamentary Powers were obtained and funding secured to build the network, followed by details of the construction process, including a survey of each Supertram route.

Day-to day operations are examined, including driver training, deployment of trams, the signalling system, ticketing, fares and the timetable. Infrastructure is also covered, including tram stops, Nunnery depot, signalling, trackwork and electrification. The various extensions proposed over the years are also discussed.
