The most complete account ....
A highly detailed and complete account of Glasgow's colourful trolleybuses, the last new system to be built in the UK (so far!) Published to commemorate the 70 years since their introduction in 1949, this city-wide system welcomed trolleybuses into a huge municipal undertaking of trams and buses at a time when road public transport was vital to urban life. Innovative and confident, the Corporation was to introduce 35foot single deck trolleybuses that were at the forefront of industry standards. But competition from cars and changed priorities saw decline before full potential could be realised, in an era that didn't understand the impact of fossil fuels. The story presented is detailed and very pictorially comprehensive, told over 222 pages and with 454 pictures and maps.
