The Wantage Tramway by Nicholas De Courtais. A much enlarged edition of the author’s 1981 book describing and illustrating the roadside tramway that ran from the Great Western main line at Wantage Road to the town of the same name.
Indisputably one the most idiosyncratic and delightful of Britain’s diverse collection of light railways and tramways, this new edition contains a wonderful collection of images together with a surprisingly large number of recollections of both using and working on the line. These recollections have been sourced over a period of years by the Chris Turner.
