No area of the nation relied on the railways more than the rural countryside. Everything from people, fruit and livestock were carried by train on a network that linked the smallest villages and communities with the rest of the country. By the 1960s those days were long gone. With fewer lines and evolving rolling stock, the role of the railways was changing dramatically. Featuring a bygone era of railways in the East of England, from the 1900s to the 1980s, this enlightening documentary takes you on a journey of change using archive footage from the days of steam through to the now familiar diesel and electric locomotives.
