Vintage Cab Ride 1971
MARKET HARBOROUGH - SHEFFIELD
This programme concludes our 1971 cab journey along the Midland Main Line following the route from Market Harborough to Sheffield via Derby. Originally the professionally filmed footage was taken for use in an Advanced Passenger Train (APT) driving simulator, but was never actually used. Transport Video Publishing have painstakingly produced this historic material into a truly fascinating programme.
At the time of the cab ride a whole fleet of now redundant locos worked the Midland Main Line services. You will see countless Class 45s rushing past on expresses, the slightly less powerful Class 44s on freight and Classes 20, 25, 31, 37 and 47 providing the supporting cast. Marvel at the old semaphores, long forgotten loops and branches, stations which were still years away from modemisation. In short this programme provides an essential reminder of how the railway used to be.
In addition to the extensive cab footage, lineside material from the period is also included plus at a few select locations a view from today.
This is one programme you will watch again and again.
