This document is a collection of memorabilia, data pictures and drawings from the tramways in the South West. They are not arranged to form an article but rather to make a series of Showcases which the visitor can browse through, investigating items of interest more thoroughly. It owes its existence to John Perkin, a member of the SWEHS, who has collected nearly all the data provided here. Peter Davey is providing the information on the Bristol Bath and Weston systems. Thanks are also due to Terry Russell for permission to use his PSU Tramcar Drawings and John Gillham for the Track Layouts used. ( Contact Details at end of document)
