Sunderland Transport - Book by John Carlson
Sunderland Transport takes the reader on a ride back in time on the trams and buses that once plied the city's streets. Put together by local transport enthusiast John Carlson, this book is packed with photos, illustrations and diagrams that depict the growth and change in public transport when Sunderland was still a town, including the many different types of trams and buses that were in the corporation's employ and at the Wheatsheaf, Hylton and Fulwell depots including the repair and maintenance facilities. Also covered are the services of Sunderland and District Tramway Company and its follow-on bus operations and those of the Economic bus company. Along the way there is a good glimpse of some of the local features such as the Wear Bridge, town centre shops and the long tramline up Durham Road.
