End of an Era Dvd




The Era of Working Steam.

The Railways Scene of the 1960s.

The great days of working steam around the Network.

Towards the end of working steam on British Railways a number of locations became ‘favourites’ as enthusiasts gathered to record the end of an era.

In this programme we return to these vantage points and recreate the railway scene in all its variety.

Steam and passenger workings, shunting, the railway surroundings and stations details are all featured in this homage to a long lost era.

Clapham Junction, Carnforth, Vauxhall, Waterloo, Nine Elms Shed, Severn Tunnel Junction, Chepstow, Croes Newydd, Sunderland and York are all visited using previously unpublished film.

Classes vary from former Great Western designs through to the A4s and A2s.
