The end of working steam on Britains railways heralded the start of one of the most fascinating resurgences of the last century, namely the railway restoration and preservation movement. Volunteer enthusiasts have brought back from oblivion both the famous names of mainline express locomotives and the lesser known work horses of branch and industrial siding. Great and small have been lovingly restored to full working order and have found lives on a myriad of Britains preserved railways. Others are long term operating lines that never closed and are faithfully continuing to operate for the pleasure of all!
This programme is from a series of DVDs, divided into geographical areas, examining a selection of the well and not-so-well known lines and provides the viewer with a cross section of fascinating motive power and wonderful locations. Lines featured: Central England Eastern England Scotland & Northern England.
