Book launch: “Nottingham’s growing tramway” by Geoffrey Skelsey

A last minute sub for Cllr. Jane Urquhart; and a delight to meet the Light Rail Transit Association, the publishers and the enthusiasts who bring out the vim when extolling the virtues of ‘trains running in unprotected corridor’.
The book, Nottingham’s growing tramway, tells again the story of Nottingham Express Transit, but with more photos, more depth and now with phase 2 (lines 2 and 3).
Launched at Nottingham’s Tourist Information Centre, where the book is available, it’s a great pleasure to look through the pictures, remember the ups (and downs) of the project, and to see some comparison with light rail in other cities.
One of the ups was speaking at LRTA’s 2005 conference in London, which 4 of us in the picture attended.
