History of Britain's Railways Vol 3 - Description

Product features:

· Archive footage dating back to the 1930s.
· Featuring the Great Western Railway & Southern Railway.
· Narration by Ken Morgan.
· A one hour film.

The Great Western had a continuity of history that the other railways envied. We touch on the early days and the broad gauge as we set the scene using museum and reproduction locomotives and artifacts. Much of the GWR's continuity was underlined by its locomotive policy and we illustrate its growth with footage of the 1930s which shows many of the early locomotives still in use.

Other footage takes us into the 1950s and 1960s and on into the present day.

The Southern was built from three major systems. The earliest railway in the South, the Canterbury & Whitstable, is seen in the 1950s, but other parts of the story involve both black & white and full colour footage of the 1930s.

The steam era is taken to its close whilst the Southern Electric takes us right up to today. Archive film includes such items as 'Stars', 'Metro Tanks', the rebuilding of Leamington Spa Station, 'Paddleboxes' and the 'Southern Belle'.
