This would have to be one of the most remarkable multi-gauged systems in the world. Are there any books published on this?

Portsmouth (UK)

Used to have 2 Tram systems

Portsmouth Corporation tramway (1865's - 1901 horse drawn)(Provincial ) (1901 - 1936 Electric)

Extensive system in the City all on street running, (converted to Trolley bus 1936 and closed in 1962) - some short sections of Track still remain (Rugby Road, Old Commercial Road and The Point (Broad Street (Interlaced track) Some Tram era street furniture still survives but repurposed/ A few vehicles preserved at various museums)

http://www.welcometoportsmouth.co.uk...h%20trams.html

Horndean Light railway (1903 - 1935)

Single route from initially Horndean to Cosham later extended to South Parade Pier Southsea via a joint running agreement with the Corporation Tramway) Mixture of Street running and segregated track. All Track generator houses remain in place but re purposed. Steps to former tram stops on Portsdown hill remain. 1 tramcar preserved but not in working order.

http://www.hantsphere.org.uk/portsdo...lway-1903-1935

http://www.palmantics.com/photo_web/...wplain_13.html

There was a scheme to reintroduce trams to Portsmouth in the early 2000;s running from Portsmouth and Southsea Station to Fareham Station via Gosport (South Hants Metro) there were also plans for extension lines to Horndean (basically running the old Horndean Light Railway route)(route safeguarded via bus priority route), Havant and to Southampton via the current Netley heavy rail route and some street running. scrapped when the order for the Queen Elizabeth Carriers was approved as tunnelling deeper under Portsmouth Harbour made the scheme no longer viable

The Line to Southampton via Netley though does keep resurfacing from time to time but no firm plans

Cambridge UK had a small horse drawn tram network.



Some rails were recently unearthed.
