Le Metro Sur Pneumatiques


From Mr. George Carpenter's library

Report of a session at the Seconde Confererence International sur la Mecanique du Vehicule in September 1971. This session contained a number of papers on the rubber tired underground trains which were becoming popular, after their introduction on the Paris Metro during the 1960s.

The major paper concerns the use of Choppers, but their are also papers by representatives from various metro systems then in existence. A tremendous, largely technical read for underground, or possibly tramway, buffs. Each section is in French, English, German and Spanish.

Vast number of pages, with limited illustrations - this weighs all but 1.5 kgs.

Condition - very good. Probably originally one large volume plus two smallers ones, but the larger volume and one smaller seem to have combined themselves.
