Tramscape Tramway Photographs  Links Page


Tramscape has an extensive collection of tram photos, nearly all from the camera of Gordon Stewart, who has travelled extensively to capture trams in both the centres and little-known suburbs of many of Europe's great tramway towns and cities from the late 1970s up until the present day.

The photos are primarily intended to illustrate trams in their environments, the city surroundings, the track alignments and the tramstops served, to provide a detailed snapshot of tram systems at given points in time. The aim is to have a record of as much of each route of the tram system as possible - something not necessarily available from the numerous other sources of tramway information on the internet. With the ever changing cityscapes, the photos are becoming an increasingly interesting historical record. The photos are intended to be attractive pictures in their own right with well-balanced views of tram and surrounding architecture and street life. No particular attention is paid to illustrating the specific features of tramcar design other than to appreciate the cars for what enthusiasts know them to be.

The internet now makes this important collection easily available to tramway enthusiasts and students throughout the world to complement the large amount of information available elsewhere on the internet. The Tramscape photograph catalogue includes dates, tram numbers, photo locations and direction of view and can be viewed or downloaded from this site in spreadsheet form to allow you to search for specific photos or merely browse at your leisure. Thumbnail size images are available to view on-line for all photos in the catalogue

As it is impossible for Tramscape to provide detailed information about so many tramway systems, links are provided to external websites : to those of the tram operators and regional transport unions and those of other enthusiasts who report directly on their local tram systems. Follow these links for timetable, route and fare information as well as network maps and news items.


Please make sure that you have browsed the extensive Tramscape site in full before leaving, but the following sites will be of interest.

This links page is not designed to be comprehensive, but an additional service for those wishing further research on systems covered by Tramscape's photographs.
If you have a tramway related website, tell us about it and we will create a direct link to you. All we ask is that you establish a link to us from your site. The number of sites on the internet is far too many to list here, but all private sites have links pages for onward browsing. Tramscape has no control over the content of these external sites. They are listed as a service to viewers of Tramscape's website only.

Sites are broadly grouped in the following categories :

    Modern Tramway Campaigning Organisations:
  • UNITED KINGDOM : where the case for trams is not yet won (at least in terms of procuring government finance) and a professional lobbying body is required.

  • Light Rail Transit Association (LRTA) - The Essential Website - the UK's main association for modern tramway enthusiasts and professionals
    Private Sites: System Specific

    All around the world, local experts maintain sites covering their local tramways with histories, photos and up-to-date news.
