Ivo Peters Volume 7 DVD: Steam in 1961




Ivo Peters His Films Revisited Collection. 

This is the second of ‘a series within a series’ as it is Ivo Peters’ second steam annual, looking at various events and locations in 1961.

The programme is produced from Ivo’s superb 16mm colour film and covers both main line and industrial railways, giving a unique insight into the rails of that time – now changed out of all recognition.

Highlights include:

Everyday workings on Sapperton Bank.

The Britannia Bridge.

At Honiton and Wickwar Tunnels.

Specials range from the Southern’s ‘Solent Limited’ to the last day of the Midland and South Western Railway.

Docksides feature prominently:

Weymouth Quay, Bowaters at Sittingbourne and Avonmouth Docks show three different aspects.

Shunting at Staveley, Royal Observer Corps at Bournemouth West and beautiful engines at Becton and Exeter Gasworks make this a well-rounded programme.

Steam is also seen from the cab of the Bristol Pullman on the Bristol to London main line.

Approx. 55 minutes.
