From the rear side cover: One of four volumes exploring the tramway history of Wales. With the Oystermouth Railway, Swansea can lay claim to having possessed the oldest passenger carrying line in the world; ironically, it was this line that was amongst the last first generation tramways to be completed in Britain. The massive trams, amongst the largest ever built for peration in Britain, did not enter service until 1929. Closed amidst much controversy in 1960, the Swansea & Mumbles is still much mourned. Alongside the line to Mumbles, there was also a network of routes that served the city of Swansea; the last of these were to survive until 1937 and today one tram is preserved to remind locals of this once important form of transport.
