Metropolitan Railways and Trams in Australia and New Zealand
Although long-distance rail traffic is almost non-existent in Australia and New Zealand, the major cities in these two countries boast excellent metropolitan railways, which cover the sprawling conurbations. Trams, however, have only survived in a few cities, among them Melbourne, which has one of the largest and densest tram systems in the world. The author introduces the reader to all sorts of urban rail systems in and around Sydney (including the Sydney Monorail), Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland and Wellington - and also describes in short chapters the heritage trams operating in Bendigo und Christchurch, as well as the numerous tramway museums. The book is illustrated with numerous colour photographs and detailed system maps.
