    I have a copy of Robert Schwandl’s book on Berlin which includes the trams, the U-Bahn and the S-Bahn, I used it on my trip to Berlin earlier this year, it was an invaluable source of information, I expect that the UK book will be excellent, I have already ordered a copy. Robert Schwandl’s website is also a valuable resource covering tramway & light rail systems all over the world.

    I have most of the series and like the gentleman above used the Berlin one for my first trip there in 2012. Recently purchased the North Europe and Baltic and like all very informative, also contains details of trolleybuses.

    Received my copy a couple of days ago and I must say it is a very impressive book. It is worth the money just for the stunning maps, but add in the well thought out text and good selection of photos and it becomes a ‘must have’.

    I am surprised that no UK publisher has attempted something similar in the past, but doubt that they would have produced something of the quality of this volume. It is my first Robert Schwandl purchase, but definitely won’t be the last – I anticipate purchasing other volumes prior to future visits to European tramway systems. Certainly a good traveling companion!

    Please bear in mind that the cost is more like £16.99 when you factor in postage from Germany, but it is still great value at that price.
