I hereby dedicate this site to tram buffs everywhere! While I have included some photos from my own collection for your viewing pleasure, I have also included some information as to my wider interests, as well as a want list of items and photos I would like to obtain with the assistance of other collectors. If nothing else, it is always a pleasure to hear from other members of the traction fraternity, who tend to be a rather eclectic bunch, I've found.
In addition to trams, I am interested in other modes of urban transit, including heavy rail, inclined plane railways, and (forgive me) diesel and electric buses. My favourite tram systems are: Toronto, Pittsburgh, Melbourne, Buffalo (past & present), Rochester, N.Y., Montreal, Boston, Halifax, and the legendary NS&T--Niagara, St. Catharines, and Toronto. I am always scouting the terrain for new information and photos about these systems; I have a collection of books about a great many systems, and I certainly do not limit my scope to the cities named herein. While the focus of my interest is trams of the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Britain, I certainly welcome enquires from fellow enthusiasts the world over, and if it helps--ICI, ON PARLE FRANCAIS!
I hope you enjoy my site. Feel free to e-mail me with comments, suggestions, or enquiries.
Best wishes, Roger.
