Trains Remembered vol.III: Fly-Scots Swindon-Works Longmuir-System rare-footage-30s-to-80s E

£4.99

Product description

This Late-Noughties DVD counts, as a good general introduction to the various, different forms of railway locomotion, powered by : Steam (with coal) ; Diesel-oil ; and Electricity. See below for further details ...

Ranging in time, from the Early 1930s, up to the Late 1980s, this documentary utilises archive film to create a vivid recollection of the golden days of the railways. Old Southern Railway trains are shown on their way to the seaside, followed by the approaches to Waterloo Station in the snow of 1947.

Carlisle Station full of smart electric locomotives, then back in time to 1966 for steam locos at the same station ... Famous locos appearing, include : "Clun Castle" ; "Kolhapur" ; "Blue Peter" ; &, "Oliver Cromwell". Then , double-headed steam expresses in the Leeds area. We show the once extensive Longmoor Military System in 1968, featuring - amongst others - "General Gordon" & "Errol Lonsdale". Then on to York, and the Derwent Valley Preservation Railway, which despite its proximity to the museum, only lasted a couple of years.

The now closed Swindon Works, first in the 1930s, where a locomotive is steaming away on the stationary testing rig, followed by a visit in 1975 during the diesel-hydraulic era, where classes 42 and 52 are seen, and finally a visit in 1987 during the last weeks of the works.

The 150th Anniversary of the Festinog in 1986, showing most of the locos and a gravity slate train in action. Also in 1986, the 150th Anniversary of the London & Greenwich Railway : a big exhibition was held in Cannon Street Station, where vintage electric trains gave rides, and "Sir Lamiel" an SR steam locomotive is shown ... This, in turn, leads to steam runs out of Marylebone, and then a report on 4472. The famous Flying Scotsman : from Kings Cross in 1968 ; its US trip ; and runs out of Denham.
