Using film from the Ray Webb collection we cover the area from Derby to Manchester, the Settle and Carlisle, the CLC around Northwith, Crewe of course and the West Coast main line to Carlisle.

Filming from 1962 the motive power is a wealth of Coronation pacifics, Scots, Jubilees, Patriots, 4Fs, Super Ds, 1Fs, Black 5s and 8Fs.
