This DVD gives a vivid account of the history of one of London's most famous stations and its associated Great Central Railway and Hotel. The station, first built in 1899 when it had only four platforms, was in its halcyon days graced by some of the most famous names of steam, such as The Flying Scotsman and The Mallard, shown here in the full grandeur.
The moving moment is recorded when the last commercial Black Five steams out of the station and rare film footage documents its historic progress north en-route to Nottingham. Marylebone's links with the Golden Age of Steam still linger even today and since 1985 steam specials have been run. We join the Sir Nigel Gresley on its majestic way down the line to Stratford-upon-Avon, thus re-creating a bygone era in an unforgettable way.
