    At a cover price of £40, a sharp intake of breath may ensue but, if you are a follower of the foremost historian of Fylde Coast tramways (Brian Turner undoubtedly is!), you will go out and buy it.
    And when you have and you sit down and read it, you realise immediately that it was £40 well spent.
    I worked as Director of Operations & Marketing at Fylde Transport between 1988 and 1994 when it was sold to Blackpool Transport and I had ready access to the archive going back to Lytham St.Annes Corporation Transport days and I thought that I knew most of what went on. How wrong I was!
    I couldn’t put Brian’s book down and I suspect the extra 50 copies that are being printed will only be the first in a series of reprints.
    It is written in Brian’s usual informative style and should grace the shelves of any public transport afficianado.
    Get your order in quickly!
