Northern Line Going South Dvd

Celebrating forty years of tube trains (the underground movement) on the Isle of Wight.

With a look at London Underground in the early years.

London Underground trains operating on the Isle of Wight? Yes - It’s true.

From 1967 pre-Second World War stock from the Underground has carried locals and holiday makers on the Ryde to Shanklin line via Sandown.

The carriages’ relatively low height and length meant that, after electrification of this eight and half mile line, they were just the ticket as replacements for even more ancient steam-hauled trains.

Not only does this film tell the fascinating story of the Underground trains on the Isle of Wight, but also delves deeply into the early London history of the three lines from which the age defying stock emanated: the Piccadilly, the now defunct Northern City and (later) the Northern.

The early beginnings of the London Underground itself - the world's first underground is also highlighted.

The narrator is Peter Boffin and Michael Arnell provides a suitably retro commentary for old film footage provided by the London Transport Museum, which also kindly allowed the free use of many of its photographs.

Approx. 85 minutes.
