Tram lines now and then

This is public transport cartography based on data taken from Rail Map Online. The maps show ‘now’ and ‘then’ tram line networks in UK and Ireland cities. Read on this in The Guardian: In praise of the tram: Britain’s lost network and the future of transport . The following maps are copies taken from the same article.

Last stroll around Red Road

A true digital mess at the site of the former highrise estate Red Road, Glasgow.
