Middleton Press

The Middleton Press publisher, the late Vic Mitchell and series editor Robert Harley, have together produced an excellent range of books for the Tramway enthusiast and modeller. Each volume gives full details of the systems involved by means of photographs and maps, normally ordered by route, together with an historic overview. Each one also has a section on the rolling stock, with photographs from various angles, and drawings suitable for the modeller, many by Terry Russell. The colour of the hardback cover of each book (trolleybus ones are softback), represents the livery of the system. New albums and reprints are also available as ebooks.
