[edit] Information

How the railways have changed over the years from the days of steam to diesel and electric.

[edit] Chapter 1: Great Western Railway

A nostalgic look at the Great Western Railway and a reminder of the brilliant engineers and designers from the company who brought us such wonderful locomotives as King George V and Gloucester Castle.

[edit] Chapter 2: Southern Railway

We see evocative footage of the engines and lines on the Southern Railway, including commuter and holiday routes of London and South East England.

[edit] Chapter 3: London Midland and Scottish Railways

We look at the largest railway company in the country, and the diverse ways that it covered its needs from heavy workhorses for long distance freight work to steam engines.

[edit] Chapter 4: London North Eastern Railway

Archive film of the second largest of the Big Four companies. We look at the high speed locomotives of Sir Nigel Gresley and views of King's Cross and York Stations in the days of steam.

[edit] Chapter 5: British Rail

We travel along the Woodhead Route, a flagship electrification project for BR and the Metropolitan Line running out of London to the suburbs and beyond.
