Pick Up Freight Dvd




A leisurely journey on a freight train along a Norfolk railway in the 1960s.

The Pick Up Freight train, winding a leisurely course along the branch line railway, disappeared from the network in the 1960s.

In this programme we take a journey with the crew on a service from Dereham to Fakenham in Norfolk.

On the way we explore the railway, the stations and watch shunting operations on this delightful by-way in 1968.

Haulage is in the form of the Brush Type 2, later to become known as Class 31s.

‘Pick Up Freight’ provides a unique record of a long lost aspect of railway operation.

As well as looking at the history of the railway to the coast at Wells.

Views from the cab of a Brush Type 2 on this journey through the Norfolk countryside.

A variety of veteran freight stock from the ear of wagonload freight.

The railway centre of Dereham with its yards and imposing station.
