Branches to the Sea Dvd




Long lost railways to the coast in the 1960s.

In the pre Beeching era, the railway was often the main mode of travel for the legions of holidaymakers making their way to the seaside.

A network of branches connected the coastal resorts with the main line network.

We explore various lines employing both steam and diesel traction in the 1960s.

The programme comprises:

The Minehead branch in the days of steam and in 1969.

The Maiden Newton to Bridport branch including an ill-fated steam special.

The Hayling Island Branch.

The Cleveden to Yatton Branch.

Yeovil Junction and its lines connecting to the coast.

The Sidmouth Branch.

This programme provides a unique record of 1960s traction working the long lost branches of the British Railways era.
