In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the BBC broadcast a series of television programmes called 'Railway Roundabout', featuring train lines which proved to be on the point of closure and locomotives that were about to disappear forever. This archive film footage has been transformed by Ian Allan and is now available as eight separate 'Railway Roundabout' videos, all superbly recreating the lost age of steam! Highlights of this fascinating video include views of the ex - GER 'E4' at Cambridge and the closing of the Wye Valley line. Heading north we view the traffic on the scenic Skye line which runs from Fort William to Mallaig. Viewers then visit a Worcestershire branch line which is followed by a trip to King's Cross shed. Other locomotives and stock featured include the Midland 'Compound' number 1000 and the'Brighton Belle'.
