    Who dismantled the old Leeds Tramway system, why and do the same parameters for its demise still exist today.

    Re: Great transport

    Probably the very people who turned us into "Motorway City of the North". They deemed that a transport system which was reliable punctual and affordable was not what our great city needed. Good old council. Brains? Maybe but no foresight. Incidentally my older brother got a ticket on the last service. It terminated at Cross Gates and was met by a despondent crowd which included me.
