Synopsis:
A fascinating compilation tracing the development of British trains throughout the 20th century. The video provides a record of the great days of steam; the magnificent express engines developed by the 'Big Four' - the GWR, SR, LNER and LMS; the many famous named trains like the Golden Arrow and the Brighton Belle; the War and Nationalisation; the amazing variety of elderly locos that survived into the 1950's; the rise of the electric train; the development of diesel traction; the end of steam; and the extraordinary mix of power still available today. Also included are lines closed before and after Dr.
Beeching; views of long forgotten railway practices; fascinating industrial rail scenes with a collection of weird and wonderful locomotives; locomotive sheds - those great cathedrals of the steam age; and various intriguing railway byways.
