Product description

This DVD revives memories of Birmingham trams in service, and also shows Birmingham, West Bromwich and Midland Red buses at work in the 1950s. Birmingham possessed the largest 3' 6" gauge tramway in Britain, and the system reached its fullest extent in 1930. The following 23 years saw the tram routes replaced by buses, except for one major route which was replaced by trolleybuses. The last tram ran in 1953, and Birmingham completed a major bus renewal programme in 1954. Birmingham was at this time the largest provincial municipal bus operator with over 1,800 vehicles. A collection of films depicting Birmingham trams and buses. Archive footage showing trains in action in the 1930s and in their final form in the post-war years. Historic film of Tennant Street bus garage, an early closure is included, and also views of the post-war bus fleet at work on various routes including Rednal, Aston and West Bromwich. There is a special feature on the Aston tram routes. Over 90% of this material has not appeared on previous titles. Black and white and colour film Originating on 8mm, 9.5mm and 1.6mm cine films.
