From the rear side cover: One of four volumes exploring the tramway history of Wales. Beyond Cardiff and Swansea in south Wales, there were seven smaller operators - Aberdare, Llanelli, Merthyr Tydfil, Neath, Newport, Pontypridd and Rhondda - that all had tramway operations. A number were to survive through to the end of the 1930s and each has a fascinating story to tell. Neath, for example, never had electric trams but gas-operated trams ran until the 1920s. Aberdare was one of the rare examples of a trolleybus route being replaced by trams. Now, however, little remains to remind people of this once important form of transport other than historic photographs.
