An archive film covering the railways in Central Scotland from Larbert to Glasgow Buchanan Street when A4 pacifics such as 60007 ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ ran on Glasgow to Aberdeen duties.

Other motive power is also shown on this route.

We then visit Bedlay Colliery with steam motive power before moving to the Fife area on lines from Dunfermline to Thornton Junction, Markinch, Alloa and Alva.

The’ Aberdonian’ railtour, using two ex-NBR J37s are also featured.

Two collieries at Kinneil and Dysart are seen in the Fife coalfields followed by a visit to the now closed Lochty Railway in the 1970s.

From Perth to Dundee in steam days with its variety of motive power in the mid-1960s.

At Dundee, although diesel hauled, the Royal Train is seen.
