Over the last decades, around twenty tram-train networks have been implemented throughout Europe, a new transport system that combines the advantages of tram and railway, allowing direct connection between city centres and their nearby towns and villages. Since the new networks started in Germany in 1979, tram-trains have spread along the Iberian Peninsula, Italy, the Netherlands, and especially France. Each one of these networks are analysed in this book through a detailed historical and technical tour.
